Summary
The General Accounting Office reviewed the Check Handling Enhancements and Expert Systems (CHEXS) procurement to determine whether a software documentation requirement included in the request for proposals was justified and whether it restricted competition. We reviewed and analyzed the request for proposals to determine whether the software documentation requirement was clearly stated, and we reviewed IRS' software documentation requirement to determine if it was reasonable. We also discussed the requirement with IRS officials, and reviewed documentation obtained from IRS concerning the reasons for the requirement and IRS' analysis of the effect of the requirement on vendors' proposals. In addition, we interviewed the vendor who questioned the requirement, and discussed with other vendors the reasons why they did not subunit contract proposals. (KAR) P. 9
