Implementing A-76 Competitions
CENTER FOR NAVAL ANALYSES ALEXANDRIA VA
Pagination or Media Count:
As part of the Outsourcing options study, N4 asked CNA to look across the services and DoD agencies to evaluate different practices and lessons learned in implementing A-76 procedures. Earlier work suggested that big savings are possible if the Navy chooses to start large-scale competitions. Since OMB is revising - rather than withdrawing - its A-76 policies, CNA focused on how the process could be streamlined to maximize savings. In this brief, we first review the evidence of competition savings found across DoD. We then discuss what role senior Navy leadership can play in easing implementation, as well as specific ways to streamline the process. We also suggest best contracting practices. Finally, we touch on employee transition issues.
