Open full Question Details
The Dept. of Defense entered into a long-term contract with Ability One in 2010. Anytime a DoD component wants to outsource for contract closeout services, it is required to use this contract to acquire the services. There is no "conflict of interest," as Ability One has nothing to gain (beyond its already-awarded contract with DoD) by helping to close out DoD contract files. Specific implementation measures, including access to contract writing systems, are left to the components to develop. See the memorandum at https://acc.dau.mil/CommunityBrowser.aspx?id=515015
