Abstract:

Nothing that GAOs past reports had identified weaknesses in contract administration at civilian agencies, the former Chairman of the House Government Operations Legislation and National Security Subcommittee asked GAO to assess how well large dollar value contracts are administered at civilian agencies. Specifically, he wanted GAO to determine if items were delivered at the time and cost agreed to in the original contract and to identify possible deficiencies in the administration of large contracts. GAO examined 87 contracts worth a total of about 1.4 billion at the Departments of Education, Energy, Health and Human Services.KR.
