GAO: DoD Should Review Contracted Services Inventory

PentagonThe Government Accountability Office has recommended the Defense Department establish measures to evaluate the accuracy and completeness of its contracted services inventory in support of oversight efforts.

GAO said in a report to Congress that some DoD agencies do not regularly review their inventories or accurately report contracted services associated with inherently governmental functions.

DoD should include proposed contracts for services associated with inherently governmental functions in its documentation and focus more on those during the review process, the report noted.

GAO also urged the department to define the parameters of responsibility between military departments, the management support office and other stakeholders on the collection of inventory data and their utilization for decision-making.
