Chief Acquisition Officers: Appointments Generally Conform to Legislative Requirements, but Agencies Need to Clearly Define Roles and Responsibilities
William T. Woods (au)
Federal agencies spent more than half a trillion dollars in FY 2011 through contracts to acquire goods and services in support of their missions, but have historically faced significant acquisition mngt. challenges preventing them from getting the best return on their investments.

This report examined: (1) how agencies have filled the CAO position; (2) the extent to which CAOs are involved in performing the acquisition management functions set forth in the SARA legislation and Office of Mngt. and Budget (OMB) guidance; and (3) what challenges, if any, agency CAOs report in fulfilling their responsibilities. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
