Abstract:

The Army Audit Agency USAAA recommended implementation of a computer model to assist in the detection and reporting of potential overpricing of spare parts. The envisioned computer model would provide a command-wide uniform approach to analysis of overpricing indicators, determination of risk of overpricing and identification of potential overpricing for further analysis. This study was confined to determining the feasibility of developing and implementing such a computer model. Many indicators of potential overpricing were identified. Data to support identified indicators exist within the process, but not generally in the Procurement Automated Data and Document System PADDS or even the Commodity Command Standard System CCSS. Since the identified indicators deal primarily with subjective, not objective criteria as overpricing indicators, an automated model is appropriate for providing information to the buyer but not appropriate for making the decision.
