Abstract:

Thank you for the opportunity to participate in todays hearing on H.R. 3832, the Services Acquisition Reform Act of 2002 SARA. The bills proposals focus on strengthening the acquisition workforce, moving toward a performance-based contracting environment, and improving the management of service acquisitions. As we testified 1 before you last November, our work shows that all these areas need attention, particularly in light of the governments increasing dependence on services.
