Abstract:

The overall audit objective was to determine whether contracting officer determinations of responsibility of contractors addressed pertinent issues and were supported by facts available before the award of contracts. Specifically, the audit focused on contracts terminated either for default or convenience and determined whether the contract terminations could have been averted based on information available before contract award. The audit also evaluated how information on contractor defaults is collected for future use in determining a contractors past performance. In addition, the audit assessed the adequacy of the management control program at DoD contract administration and buying commands as it applied to determinations of contractor responsibility.
