Summary
GAO has recently implemented a special audit effort to help ensure that areas vulnerable to fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement are identified and that appropriate corrective actions are taken. This effort focuses on 16 areas, one of which is the Department of Energy's (DOE) contracting practices. As part of this special audit effort, the Chairman, Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs, requested that GAO examine DOE'S process for formally reviewing and assessing the performance of management and operating (M & O) contractors. Specifically, GAO examined (1) the effectiveness of DOE'S use of performance objectives to set expectations and evaluate contractor performance, (2) the effectiveness of DOE's use of data from on-site reviews to evaluate contractor per- formance for award fee purposes, and (3) the effect of DOE'S new award fee regulations on the performance evaluation and award determination process. As agreed with the requester, GAO focused specifically on those contractors operating under cost-plus-award-fee contracts with DOE'S Albuquerque Field Office. This office was selected because it administers contracts for four large defense materials production plants Kansas City, Mound, Pantex, and Pinellas as well as the contract for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (wiPP), in which DOE plans to store radioactive waste.
