This report is in response to concerns expressed by the Senate and House Committees on Armed Services in their conference reports on the Department of Defense DOD Authorization Act, 1981. As directed by the Committees offices, we reviewed DODs implementation of Office of Management and Budget Circular A-76 to find out how much contracting out is taking place because of personnel ceilings, wage differentials between Federal blue collar and contractor employees, and other significant influences. Because some of the data that we obtained is considered to be proprietary information or for official use only, it has not been included in this report but is being provided to you today in a separate letter PLRD-81-19A.
