    In response to a congressional request, GAO examined certain aspects of the Agency for International Development's (AID) management of direct contracting, including: (1) the extent of competition; (2) the adequacy and clarity of scopes of work issued by AID; (3) the extent to which overhead rates and other indirect costs are validated and efforts made to minimize them; (4) the extent to which the numbers and technical proficiency of contractor personnel and associated costs are held at the minimum levels necessary; and (5) the adequacy of AID monitoring and reporting of contractor progress. For fiscal year 1982, AID reported $16.8 million in noncompetitive contract awards exceeding $100,000, not including amendments to existing contracts. GAO found that the total original awards increased by 61 percent through amendments. Amendments generally do not require competition; however, the circumstances that prompt the issuance of an amendment may provide an opportunity for competitive procurement instead. GAO also found that the statements of work in 21 of 37 active contracts were vague, which delayed contract implementation and caused poor accountability. GAO review of selected audits of overhead costs in AID direct contracts indicated that overhead rates were being validated regularly and total questioned costs were not unreasonably high. GAO found that key personnel, promised at the time contracts were awarded, were not available for contract performance, which also resulted in project delays and other detrimental effects. Finally, most contracts which GAO reviewed lacked performance indicators, and contractor progress reports tended to be generalized descriptions of project activities rather than assessments of actual versus planned performance.
