The U.S. General Services Administration announced that it is considering a recompete of its HSPD-12 contract.
In an audit report released by the office’s Inspector General, results concluded that the Managed Service Office did not consistently conduct HSPD-12 program procurement activities in compliance with GSA policy and federal procurement regulations.
The report mentioned violations of the GSA system for the administrative control of funds and the Federal Acquisition Regulation, as well as potential violations of the bona fide needs rule.
The report concluded with a recommendation that the Commissioner of the Federal Acquisition Service direct the MSO to continue efforts for the recompete of its HSPD-12 contract, including contract structures, such as direct-buy, direct-bill, or similar, as well as business processes that remove the MSO from a fund management or customer billing role.
