Abstract : Competition for financial and human resources continues to pressure Department of Defense (DoD) contracting organizations to accomplish their mission as efficiently and effectively as possible. The contracting workforce shoulders the burden of balancing the goals of maximizing taxpayers' value for money and reducing operating costs to the lowest reasonable level. Ensuring the right mix of acquisition professionals with the right competencies for each mission is essential to meet this challenge. This study, consistent with the previous work that it extends (Reed, 2010), focuses on identifying methods used to assess the workload of government contracting personnel. Organizational success depends on ensuring that the correct number of human resources with the correct competencies is available to accomplish the mission. The increasing pace of change in the federal acquisition environment and intense pressure to cut operating budgets has increased the interest in the models available for use by contracting organizations. Organizations are seeking models to measure their workloads and assign adequate resources to effectively manage the workloads with acceptable levels of risk. This research seeks to identify best-in-class variables from the previous research as well as any opportunities for improvement identified during analysis of the models.
