Abstract:

The overall audit objective was to determine the reasons many vendors are not using electronic commerce to conduct small purchase transactions with DoD. The specific objective was to identify the major technical and business barriers preventing vendors from using the Federal Acquisition Computer Network. To accomplish this objective, we surveyed 100 small- and medium-size vendors. Additionally, we announced an objective to evaluate the adequacy of the management control program applicable to the primary objective however, we did not pursue that objective because our audit work was done primarily with vendors in the private sector.
