Summary
The General Accounting Office examined federal information technology (rr) acquisitions to determine how various factors, such as procurement dollar size, contract type, and bid protests, affect the length of time to award a contract. While considerable anecdotal data exist on how long the procurement process takes, very little validated and projectable data have been available on a government wide basis. To develop such data, GAO drew a statistically valid sample of all contract award notices published over a 2-year period in the Commerce Business Daily and sent detailed questionnaires to the relevant contracting officers. GAO received an 81 percent response rate, which represents 2,720 contracts worth almost $16 billion, and stratified the sample by the six agencies with the most contract award notices and by four different dollar ranges $25,000 to $250,000, $250,000 to $2.5 million, $2.5 million to $25 million, and $25 million and more. GAO used the data obtained to answer frequently asked questions about rr acquisitions. (KAR)
