GAO: Navy Should Designate Specific Unit to Oversee Assessments of New Contracting Strategy Implementation

ContractSigningThe Government Accountability Office has recommended the U.S. Navy assign systematic assessment tasks on the implementation of the service branch’s Multiple Award Contract, Multi Order contracting strategy to a single entity.

A report GAO posted Monday says the Navy does not possess a systematic process to assess overall implementation of MAC-MO that involves the fleet- and shore-based maintenance communities.

Auditors noted that contract holders from the former Multi Ship, Multi-Option contracting strategy have expressed concerns on the continual need to compete for work while small businesses look to compete as prime contractors under MAC-MO.

MAC-MO will look to establish more competition and control costs with the help of lessons learned from its pilot maintenance periods, via firm-fixed price contracts and third-party planner utilization, GAO added.
