ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the evaluation of interagency and enterprisewide contracts by the U.S. Government Accountability Office. It mentions the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and contracting agencies, like General Services Administration, lack reliable and comprehensive data to effectively leverage, manage and supervise the contracts. Meanwhile, the Office of Federal Procurement Policy of OMB is expected to stabilize oversight and management of multiagency contracts (MAC).
