ABSTRACT
The article presents a report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) about the competition in federal contracting. It describes key factors affecting competition including reliance on contractor expertise and proprietary data and preference for incumbent. It suggests that efforts by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to reduce agencies' use of high risk contract types may help agencies refocus and reenergize efforts to improve competition.
