Abstract : The Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) of the Office of Management and Budget, which collected the data for us, designed a computer-based system to collect the required data. We met with 0FPP staff on several occasions and discussed the data collection and analysis system used to compile the information and data collection as it progressed. 0FPP officials reviewed a draft of this report and agreed with its conclusions. In order to assure ourselves that the submitted data were processed correctly, we reviewed the design of the computer-based software system; the data-gathering instructions to the responding organizations and accompanying computer-based data collection instruments; the data communications procedures; the established procedures for helping organizations properly complete the information request; the computer-based edit checks, error detection routines, and correction procedures; and software routines used to summarize the data. pg 9.
