Answers to Hearing Questions Regarding the Service Acquisition Reform Act
GAO-02-503R: Published: Mar 1, 2002. Publicly Released: Mar 1, 2002.
GAO reviewed the proposed Service Acquisition Reform Act and found that additional training for the acquisition workforce is needed governmentwide. Agencies could improve the capacity of the acquisition workforce by focusing on such key areas as requirements, inventory, workforce strategies and plans, and progress evaluations. GAO did not examine how pay-for-performance and pay banding would apply to acquisition personnel. However, these practices are consistent with suggestions made in earlier GAO testimony.
