John K. Needham (au)
The Project BioShield Act of 2004 (BioShield Act) increased the fed. govíts. ability to procure needed countermeasures to address threats from chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear agents. Under the BioShield Act, HHS was provided with new contracting authorities (increased simplified acquisition and micropurchase thresholds, and expanded abilities to use procedures other than open competition and personal services contracts) and was authorized to use $5.6 billion in a Special Reserve Fund to procure countermeasures. This report reviewed: (1) how HHS has used its purchasing and contracting authorities; and (2) the extent to which HHS has internal controls in place to manage and ensure the appropriate use of its new authorities.
