Abstract:

The amount of money that the Department of Defense DOD spends each year contracting for goods and services dwarfs the amounts spent by other federal agencies. For example, during fiscal year 1999, DOD reported that it spent about 130 billion on contracts for goods and services. By comparison, the second largest contractor of goods and services in the federal government was the Department of Energy, which reported that it spent about 15.5 billion during the same period.
