Opening Statement Of Senator Levin

Senator Levin. Good morning, everybody.

Today's Subcommittee hearing will examine the practice of contract off-loading at Federal agencies. Contract off-loads are inter-agency purchases, which occur when one agency buys goods or services through a second agency, under a contract administered by that second agency. Such purchases are expressly authorized under certain circumstances under the Economy Act and, when properly used, can save money by consolidating similar requirements in a single contract.

Unfortunately, today's testimony will show that the abuse and the misuse of contract off-loads have become rampant and now totals in the hundreds of millions of dollars every year. Off-loads have been abused and misused to avoid competition. They have been abused and misused to spend expiring funds before they revert to the Treasury. They have been abused and misused to avoid audits and contract oversight. All too often, such off-loads result in sole-source contracts with favored contractors, for which agencies escape management responsibility.

Let me describe a typical case. In 1991, DOD's Non-Acoustic Anti-Submarine Warfare Office decided that it needed outside expertise.
