Abstract:

In fiscal year 2008, the DOD obligated $200 billion on services contracts, including $42 billion for professional and management services. GAO previously identified weaknesses in DOD's management and oversight of services contracts, contributing to DOD contract management being on GAO's high-risk list. For selected professional and management support contracts, GAO was asked to examine (1) the extent to which DOD considered the risks of contractors closely supporting inherently governmental functions at key decision points, (2) how DOD implemented performance-based practices, (3) the extent to which DOD designated trained surveillance personnel, and (4) whether a new review process may improve DOD's management of such contracts. GAO reviewed federal regulations, agency policies and guidance, and analyzed seven acquisitions approved from 2004 to 2007 and 64 related task orders for services. GAO recommends that DOD consider and document how contractors closely support inherently governmental functions during management reviews and to mitigate related risks before issuing task orders, provide additional guidance on enhanced oversight techniques, and better monitor the designation of trained surveillance personnel. DOD concurred with each of the recommendations.
