Objective. We determined whether the contracts and tasks orders related to the Army Utility Energy Services Contracts UESCs were properly awarded and administered.Specifically, we reviewed the contract and task orders related to the UESC awarded for the U.S. Army Garrison Presidio of Monterey POM, Monterey, California, with a maximum expected value of 10 million. This is the second in a series of audits on Army UESCs. Finding. Contracting personnel at the San Antonio Mission and Installation Contracting Command and POM program personnel properly awarded and administered the POM UESC. However, personnel at the Army Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management, U.S. Army Installation Management Command, San Antonio Mission and Installation Contracting Command, and POM did not have standard operating procedures or sufficient guidance in place over the UESC program. This occurred because this contract was the first UESC for San Antonio Mission and Installation Contracting Command and POM personnel therefore, they had not yet created UESCspecific standard processes. In addition, the Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management personnel stated they were waiting to issue guidance until after a Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement case is resolved. Although current personnel have awarded and administered the UESC appropriately, without documenting adequate and appropriate procedures and guidance, Army officials may not be able to effectively award UESC contracts and administer the UESC program in the future.
