GAO Finds Incomplete Historical Data on Canceled DoD Solicitations

GAOThe Government Accountability Office has found incomplete historical data available from government sources to analyze the Defense Department‘s canceled solicitations.

GAO said Wednesday DoD officials indicated the department does not track data on canceled solicitations and that data available on the Federal Business Opportunities portal is not in a format suitable for trend analysis.

“The Federal Acquisition Regulation and GAO bid protest decisions identify general standards that the government must meet before canceling a solicitation depending on the type of solicitation procedure used,” GAO noted.

The office added that it is required to report on both the standards for cancellation and the availability of data on canceled DoD solicitations based on a provision in the National Defense Authorization Act for 2016.
