The Government Accountability Office conducted an inspection on the construction projects of the Army Corps of Engineers and the General Services Administration. GAO said Tuesday that it found both agencies do not regularly track the time length of processing contract changes. This reduces USACE's and GSA's capacities to identify and address issues, according to GAO.
The accountability office recommends the agencies develop a headquarters-level strategy to standardize information collection and time frame monitoring of construction contract changes. Additionally, GAO advises USACE to expand existing data and systems to develop the sought strategy. GAO administered the study due to contractors' reports on delays of contractual changes.
