GAO: Interagency contracts need better management

By Marjorie Censer

Interagency contracts are supposed to save the government money, but the Government Accountability Office said Tuesday there is not enough policy in place to properly oversee these contracts.

In a new report, the audit agency recommends the Office of Management and Budget and the General Services Administration improve management of government-wide acquisition contracts and multiagency contracts -- known as GWACs and MACs. Both agencies agreed with the recommendations.

According to GAO's report, the government doesn't know the total number of MACs and enterprise-wide contracts, and limited data makes it difficult to identify them. Auditors also found that many of the same agencies were receiving similar products and services from the same contractors through separate contracts.
