GAO: DOE’s NNSA Needs More Effective Contract Document Management Procedures

The Government Accountability Office has recommended that the National Nuclear Security Administration adopt a strategy to ensure that contract documents are readily available for immediate use of principal users and partner agencies.

GAO said Wednesday the Office of Acquisition and Project Management within the Department of Energy’s NNSA should require field offices to use the DOE’s Strategic Integrated Procurement Enterprise System for management and operating contract document management.

The watchdog also said OAPM should keep a closer eye on how field offices organize management and operating contract documents and use such observations to better streamline those efforts.

GAO found during a study that OAPM did not have immediate access to key management and operating contract documents at NNSA field offices, casting doubt on OAPM’s capability to perform its oversight responsibilities.
