OMB issues guidance on A-76 reports

Agencies have until Nov. 10 to detail the public-private competitions they held in fiscal 2005 and the savings they hope to achieve under the administration's competitive-sourcing initiative.

Each department must submit its report to the Office of Management and Budget, which then will develop a consolidated, governmentwide report for Congress. OMB will send the agency reports and the consolidated analysis to Capitol Hill by Dec. 31.

In a memo to agency executives, OMB deputy director for management Clay Johnson outlined the requirements for the 2005 reports, including four new ones.

The new requirements include tracking the cost of the winning bid for each performance period throughout the duration of the contract or letter of obligation.

Agencies also must describe how they are addressing human capital challenges, such as 'skill imbalances, competency gaps and organizational redundancies.'
