Summary
Negative outcomes should be no surprise given the convergence of DOD's growing reliance on contractors to provide services and long-standing problems with contract management. These problems ill-defined requirements, inadequate competition, ineffective management and surveillance of contractor performance, and inappropriate uses of other agencies contracts have resulted in outcomes that have cost the department valuable resources. These problems are not new and, if they remain unresolved, will only continue to waste DOD s resources. However, the department is not in a good position to address these long-standing problems. DOD does not know where it wants service acquisitions to be in the next few years or how to get there. DOD is taking some steps to address these problems but much remains to be done
