Director DPAP Memo Annual Review ofthe Acquisition of Services Policy and Oversight - DTD 5 Nov 12

Although not all PBL Product Support Arrangements are contracts (or Services contracts), some are. According to this memorandum, “Improvement in the trade craft used to acquire services continues to be one of the highest priority focus areas for the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology & Logistics) (USD(AT&L)). Each year, in accordance with DoDI 5000.02, Enclosure 9, Paragraph 3.f., our office (DPAP) performs an overarching review to assess the Department's progress in this important area.This year, we will accomplish the review by asking each of you to provide a brief written response to each of the topics listed on the attached summary. In addition, and consistent with a recent DoD IG finding and report recommendation (reference Project No. D2011-DOOAT-0253.000), you are requested to conduct a review of knowledge-based service contracts valued at $10 million or more that have been awarded to a single contractor for which the period of performance exceeds three years (including options). The purpose of this review is to identify appropriate opportunities to conduct more frequent re-competition. If your organization had already conducted such a review in response to the memorandum signed by the USD(AT&L) on November 3, 2010, request you re-address to review contracts that have been awarded since the original assessment.” Applies to Services Acqusition
