GAO: Navy Should Designate Specific Unit to Oversee Assessments of New Contracting Strategy Implementation

1 min read

ContractSigningThe Government Accountability Office has recommended the U.S. Navy assign systematic assessment tasks on the implementation of the service branch’s Multiple Award Contract, Multi Order contracting strategy to a single entity.

A report GAO posted Monday says the Navy does not possess a systematic process to assess overall implementation of MAC-MO that involves the fleet- and shore-based maintenance communities.

Auditors noted that contract holders from the former Multi Ship, Multi-Option contracting strategy have expressed concerns on the continual need to compete for work while small businesses look to compete as prime contractors under MAC-MO.

MAC-MO will look to establish more competition and control costs with the help of lessons learned from its pilot maintenance periods, via firm-fixed price contracts and third-party planner utilization, GAO added.
