Project Announcement: Evaluation of DoD Contracting Officer Actions on Terminated Contract Costs (Project No. D2021-DEV0SO-0113.000)


We plan to begin the subject evaluation in April 2021. The objective of this evaluation is to determine the extent to which DoD contracting officers complied with the Federal Acquisition Regulation, DoD policy, and Agency policy when they negotiated the costs on terminated DoD contracts, including those contracts that may have been terminated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. To accomplish the objective, we plan to evaluate the DoD contracting officer actions on a representative sample of terminated contracts that were negotiated from January 1, 2018, through December 31, 2020.
