The General Services Administration’s office of the inspector general has asked the Federal Acquisition Service to have an interagency agreement in place prior to the delivery of support services to customer agencies as they transition to the $50 billion Enterprise Infrastructure Services contract.
GSA OIG wrote in a Friday memorandum to FAS Commissioner Alan Thomas that FAS has provided EIS transition support services worth approximately $9 million to agencies under the Transition Ordering Assistance task order awarded in September 2016 without the initial execution of IAAs.
“In the absence of these agreements, FAS is assuming an unnecessary degree of risk, which may lead to ineffective contract management and transition delays,” Sonya Panzo, associate deputy assistant inspector general for auditing at OIG, wrote in the memo.
In response to a draft memo, Thomas said FAS plans to have agencies implement IAAs for TAA support services by Jan. 31.
The OIG’s memo came five months after GSA awarded 10 companies spots on the EIS governmentwide contract designed to replace the Networx contract for telecommunications and information technology support services.
