Abstract:

The objective of the Department of Defenses DODs combined procurement procedure is to reduce acquisition costs by consolidating orders for spare parts with orders for production components. GAO concluded that the DOD guidance on the procedure should contain provisions requiring audit verification that manufacturers are combining orders for pricing purposes. DOD agreed with GAOs recommendation on this matter and stated that audit verification provisions would be included in a military standard or another appropriate publication. This document contains letters to Sec. Weinberger and from Asst. Sec. Korler to the GAO.
