We reviewed a nonstatistical sample of 33 orders, valuedat 13.6 million. Findings.Contracting personnel at the U.S. ArmyEngineering and Support Center, Huntsville CEHNC, made adequate price reasonableness determinations for 8 of 33 orders, valued at 3.6 million of 13.6 million, reviewed. Specifically, CEHNC contracting personnel compared the prices from more than one technically acceptable vendor quote and selected the lower vendor quote.
