Description
 
Competition is a critical tool for achieving the best return on the government's investment. Federal agencies are generally required to award contracts competitively but are permitted to award noncompetitive contracts under certain circumstances, such as when requirements are of such an unusual and compelling urgency that the government would suffer serious financial or other injury. Contracts that use the urgency exception to competition must generally be no longer than one year in duration. This report examined the use of this exception by the Departments of Defense (DOD) and State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). For these three agencies, the report assessed (1) the pattern of use; (2) the reasons agencies awarded urgent noncompetitive contracts and the extent to which justifications met FAR requirements; and (3) the extent to which agencies limited the duration. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
