Navy’s Single-Award Indefinite-Delivery Indefinite‑Quantity Contracts
We determined whether the U.S. Navy’s single-award, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts were properly justified. In addition, we determined whether internal processes for developing, approving, and evaluating determination and findings (D&F) documents were sufficient, based on Federal and DoD policies.
The Navy awarded 35 single-award IDIQ contracts each greater than $112 million, with a combined value of $37.6 billion, from October 1, 2014, through December 20, 2016. IDIQ contracts are used when the exact quantity and times of future deliveries are not known at the time of the contract award. We selected a nonstatistical sample of 14 single-award IDIQ contracts, with combined base and all options valued at $7.7 billion, to review at Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), Office of Naval Research (ONR), and Marine Corps Installations National Capital Region-Regional Contracting Office (MCINCR-RCO).
