Abstract:

This report provides data on prime contract actions PCAs over 25,000 awarded by the Department of Defense DoD in fiscal year FY 1997. For reporting purposes, contracts have been distributed by dollar value into 11 different size categories. The tables provide information on the number of total actions, their net value, and their percentage of distribution, by size, and according to a variety of categories. The categories include Defense component, type of contract involved, extent of competed procurements, kind of contract action taken, selected procurement programs, and labor standard statutes. Table 1 presents data by individual size category e.g., 25,000 to 49,999, 50,000 to 99,999 while Tables 2 through 7 present data in cumulative categories e.g., 25,000 or more, 50,000 or more. The information in Prime Contract Awards, Size Distribution, assists DoD management in projecting the workload that will be required by various proposed projects, For example, using data in this publication, DoD officials could determine that a proposal to review all contract actions of 500, 000 or more in FY 1997 would require examining approximately 26, 000 transactions, or 11.3 percent of the total transactions as shown in Table 2. These data can also be used to identify trends in DoD procurement, e.g., to identify which of the various types of contracts were most frequently awarded, in terms of number of contract actions, during FY 1997.
