Defense Contracting: Improved Insight and Controls Needed over DOD's Time-and-Materials Contracts( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under time-and-materials contracts, payments to contractors are made based on the number of labor hours billed at hourly rates and, if applicable, other direct costs. Because of the risk they pose to the government, their use is supposed to be limited to cases where no other contract type is suitable. GAO was asked to identify trends in the Department of Defense's (DoD) obligations under time-and-materials contracts; analyze what DoD is buying under these contracts; assess why DoD is using them and whether actions are being taken to ensure that they are used only when no other contract type is suitable; evaluate DoD's monitoring of contractor performance; and determine the differences between the labor rates prime contractors bill DoD and the rates in their subcontracts. GAO reviewed 82 time-and-materials contracts, agreements, and orders and examined prime contract and subcontract labor rates on 12 additional contracts or agreements. GAO is recommending that DoD require more diligence in justifying the use of certain types of time-and-materials contracts, analyze the use of time-and-materials on indefinite-quantity contracts to ensure that it does not become the default contract type, and require monitoring plans to reflect the risks inherent in this contract type. In written comments on a draft of this report, DoD concurred with the recommendations
Defense Exports. Foreign Military Sales Program Needs Better Controls for Exported Items and Information for Oversight( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State, DOD, and DHS have made some changes in the program but have not corrected weaknesses we previously identified in the FMS program?s shipment verification process, and DOD's expanded monitoring lacks written guidance for selecting countries for compliance visits. First, State has not finalized its regulations to establish DOD's role in the FMS shipment verification process, and CBP port officials lack information needed to verify that FMS shipments are properly authorized. As a result, of the port data we reviewed, we found six FMS sales agreements where CBP permitted shipments of defense articles to the foreign country even though DOD records showed that shipments were no longer authorized under the agreements. CBP officials stated that a planned centralized data system could provide the needed information to port officials so they can verify FMS shipments, but the planned system does not currently have funding to include such export information. Second, DOD lacks mechanisms to fully ensure the correct FMS shipments reach the right foreign customers-in part because DOD does not track most FMS shipments once they leave DOD supply centers and continues to rely on the foreign governments to notify the department when a shipment has not been received. Finally, since 2003, DSCA personnel have led teams to visit 19 out of 76 countries that have purchased sensitive defense articles, such as Stinger missiles, under the FMS program. However, DOD does not have written guidance to prioritize compliance monitoring visits using a risk management approach, and DSCA has not yet conducted such visits in countries with a high number of uninventoried defense articles

Department of Homeland Security: Better Planning and Assessment Needed to Improve Outcomes for Complex Service Acquisitions( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All service contracts for the eight major, complex investments we reviewed had outcome-oriented requirements, but the requirements were not always well-defined. Four of the eight contracts we reviewed did not have well-defined requirements, or a complete set of measurable performance standards, or both at the time of contract award or start of work. These service contracts experienced cost overruns, schedule delays, or did not otherwise meet performance expectations. In contrast, service contracts for the other four investments had well-defined requirements linked to measurable performance standards. Contractors had begun work on three of these four contracts and performed within budget meeting the standards. This finding is consistent with our prior work on service contracting, which has highlighted the criticality of sound acquisition planning to develop stable, well-defined requirements and measurable performance standards to achieving desired outcomes. Components conducted quality assurance surveillance for the contracts we reviewed. For the four contracts that had negative outcomes, surveillance helped DHS components to identify contractor performance weaknesses and corrective actions were taken. Prior GAO work has found that if acquisitions, including those that are performance-based, are not appropriately planned, structured, and monitored, there is an increased risk that the government may receive products or services that are over budget, delivered late, and of unacceptable quality

DOD assessments of supplier-base availability for future defense needs by Belva M Martin( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Both DOD and Commerce conduct assessments of supplier-base availability for defense needs that generally focus on the next 5 years. Several offices within DOD and Commerce's Office of Technology Evaluation have a role in assessing supplier-base availability, primarily conducting short-term assessments of selected sectors or existing weapon programs. In 2004, DOD's Office of Industrial Policy conducted a one-time series of comprehensive DOD-wide assessments of supplier-base availability that forecasted 10-20 years into the future. According to DOD and Commerce officials, assessments of future supplier-base availability for defense needs beyond a 5-year time frame can have limitations, in part, because it can be difficult to predict technologies and whether investment in the supplier base will be needed to support these technologies. Recently, the National Research Council and an industry association recommended that DOD continually assess the supplier base from a more strategic perspective to include its availability for long-term defense needs. DOD has not acted on these recommendations; however, DOD plans to incorporate industrial base considerations into its 2010 Quadrennial Defense Review to raise awareness of long-term, future, supplier-base availability for defense needs
