Competition is the cornerstone of a sound acquisition process and a critical tool for achieving the best return on investment for taxpayers. In FY 2012, the Dept. of Defense (DOD) obligated $359 billion through contracts and task orders, of which 57% was competed. DOD also obligates billions of dollars annually on contracts that are awarded competitively, but for which the government received only one offer. DOD implemented the Better Buying Power initiative in 2010, in an effort to increase competition. This report discusses DODs non-competitive and one-offer contracts. It examined (1) trends in DODs use of noncompetitive awards; (2) factors influencing DODs competition rate; (3) the extent to which justifications provided insight into the reasons for noncompetitive awards; and (4) the impact of DODs new requirement for competitive solicitations that only elicit one offer. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
