Abstract:

This is our final report on the Audit of Architect-Engineer Contracting at U.S. Army Engineer Division1 Europe, for your information and use. Management comments on a draft of the report were considered in preparing the final report. This is the last in a series of four reports issued as part of our ongoing audit of architect-engineer contracting. The Contract Management Directorate made the audit from March 1989 through February 1990. The audit covered architect-engineer actions reported during fiscal years 1987 and 1988. The overall audit objectives were to evaluate the system for awarding architect- engineer contracts, to determine if statements of work were appropriately definitive to identify specific work to be performed, and to determine if the contractor satisfactorily performed the work specified. We also followed up on the use of advisory audits, the acquisition of certificates of current cost or pricing data and the related statements of reliance, and utilization of postaward audits of architect-engineer contracts as discussed in Finding B. of our Audit Report No. 87-219, Military Specifications for Commercial Type Construction Items, August 12, 1987. In fiscal years 1987 and 1988, 368 locations in DOD reported 21,770 architect-engineer contracts valued at or over 25,000 each totaling 4.8 billion. The U.S. Army Engineer Division, Europe, reported 580 direct architect-engineer contracts valued at or over 25,000 each totaling 65.4 million. This report discusses one of four European sites covered by this audit.
