Abstract : The increasing use of multi-year and total package procurement has given rise to the possibility of achieving greater economies by the use of multi-year subcontracts. In addition, prime contracts placed on an annual funding basis, and sole source prime contracts may provide opportunities for price reductions through multi-year subcontracting. The purpose of this task is to (1) investigate industry policies and practices in using multi-year procurement techniques at the subcontract level; (2) identify and analyze DoD policy, fiscal, and contractual impediments, if any, to the use of multi-year subcontracts for both multi-year and non-multi-year prime contracts; (3) identify and analyze any extraordinary risks to both the Government and contractors inherent in multi-year subcontracting; (4) develop criteria for selection and conduct of procurements to test the practicability, and to determine the benefits to the Government of multi-year subcontracting.
