DoD IG: Marine Corps Systems Command Needs Small Business Subcontracting Guidelines

PentagonThe Defense Department’s inspector general has called on contracting officials at the Marine Corps Systems Command to determine whether prime contractors comply with subcontracting objectives for small businesses.

The recommendation follows an assessment of 40 out of 208 prime contracts worth $1.3 billion awarded by MCSC, DoD IG said in a Nov. 10 audit report.

The assistant commander for contracts at MCSC should issue guidance for the assessment, approval and administration of subcontracting plans and provide training for contracting officers on such responsibilities, DoD IG said.

The IG also suggested the creation of a centralized storage system for completed contracts and development of file transfer procedures for ongoing contracts.

IG said in the report that small businesses were given adequate opportunity to compete for MCSC’s prime contracts.
