Abstract:

In November 1989, Defense Management Report Decision 916 Decision 916 directed that the contract administration services structure within DoD be reorganized and that virtually all DoD contract administration services be consolidated into a single organization. In February 1990, as a result of Decision 916, DoD established the Defense Contract Management Command within the Defense Logistics Agency to provide contract administration services throughout DoD. DoD implemented the consolidation as part of an overall Secretary of Defense plan to realize substantial improvements and savings in the DoD acquisition process. Before the consolidation, contract administration services were divided among the three Military Departments and the Defense Logistics Agency. The consolidation required that DoD transfer administration of all contracts, except base support and other specifically exempted contracts, to the Defense Contract Management Command. Contract administration offices are responsible for ensuring that contract terms and conditions are met and that all regulations and statutes are followed. The Defense Contract Management Command established the Defense Contract Management Command- International the International District to provide policy and oversight for contract administration offices outside the United States. Of 736 personnel assigned to the International District as of September 1995, 167 22.7 percent personnel were assigned to 4 contract administration area offices in the Pacific. Of 5,028 contracts, with unliquidated obligations of 2.9 billion, that the International District administered, the Pacific offices administered 53110.6 percent contracts with unliquidated obligations of 67 million 2.3 percent.
