Summary
In response to your request, we (1) compared the workforce reductions taken in the Department of Defense's (DOD) acquisition organizations from fiscal year 1993 through fiscal year 1997 with the reductions taken in DOD 5 overall workforce during that time frame and (2) identified initiatives the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) and the Defense Contract Management Command (DCMC) have taken in their contract oversight responsibilities to compensate for the reduction in their staff. In recent years, DOD has substantially reduced the size of its total and acquisition workforces. Many of these reductions were made pursuant to the National Defense Authorization Acts for Fiscal Years 1996 and 1997 (P.L. 104-106 and P.L. 104-201, respectively). Among other things, section 906 of the 1996 act required DOD to submit a plan on how it would restructure its acquisition organizations so that 25 percent of their personnel could be reduced over a 5-year period, beginning October 1, 1995. Section 902 of the 1997 act amended section 906 to require total reductions of 30,000 employees in fiscal years 1996 and 1997 combined. In addition, section 912 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1998 (P.L. 105-85) required a reduction of 25,000 employees in fiscal year 1998. The act allowed the Secretary of Defense to reduce as few as 10,000 employees on certification that cost-effective management and military readiness would be impaired
