Agency Responsibilities for the Preparation of AoAs and Business Cases

​OMB M19-13, Category Management: Making Smarter Use of Common Contract Solutions and Practices, rescinded the Sept. 29, 2011 OFPP Memo entitled Development, Review, and Approval of Business Cases for Certain Interagency and Agency Specific Acquisitions.  The paragraph below introduces the Analysis of Alternatives to make the business case for creating agency contracts, considering category management.  NOTE: This is NOT about AoAs for supporting Materiel Solutions Analysis which may be found in the JCIDS Manual.


[OMB M19-13, para. c] Analyze alternatives to support investment decisions. Effective immediately, to support the successful achievement of Spend Under Management (SUM), Best in Class (BIC), and small business contracting goals, agencies shall develop analyses of alternatives (AoAs) for certain planned acquisitions of common goods and services. AoAs are critical to ensuring that agencies give serious consideration to BIC and Government-wide solutions. AoAs may also help category managers and service providers of these solutions to determine where to strengthen future iterations of vehicles to meet agency needs. Accordingly, agencies shall develop AoAs for acquisitions of common goods and services planned for award that are:
o over $50 million and will be considered “Tier 0” spending; and
o over $100 million and will be considered “Tier 1” spending. 


If you have an example that I can share here on the Category Management Community, please send it to your DAU editor, Adam Stroup at adam.stroup@dau.edu.
