Outsourcing lists are issued

The Defense and Justice departments are among the latest agencies to identify jobs that could be outsourced.

The DOD listing includes 504,000 civilian jobs, although the department identified 308,000 of those as potential candidates for outsourcing in the short term. The other 196,000 are exempt from outsourcing because Pentagon brass have determined that government employees should do them.

The Justice Department listed 4,291 jobs that could potentially be outsourced.

The inventory, issued late last month by the Office of Management and Budget, is the third so far. The Federal Activities Inventory Reform Act of 1998 requires agencies to create annual lists of jobs that are not inherently governmental and those that could be performed by the private sector.
