In spite of the continuing attention being focused on the use of contract consultants, serious and pervasive problems continue to exist. These problems include: (1) the weakening in-house capabilities of DOD to perform its mission; (2) extensive contract awards resulting from unsolicited proposals; (3) the significant involvement of former DOD officials and employees in contracts; (4) the continuous renewal of contracts; (5) instances of questionable need for and use made of the contract services; (6) the overuse of sole-source awards; and (7) extensive contract modifications. GAO believes that an assessment of the capability of DOD to perform all essential management functions in-house under existing personnel ceiling constraints is needed to achieve effective actions for these problems.
