Abstract : On November 4, 1995, the Charter for the Procurement Process Reform Process Action Team was approved. That team was directed to develop a comprehensive plan to reengineer specific elements of the procurement process within DoD in direct support of far reaching DoD goals related to acquisition reform. The Process Action Team(PAT) focussed its efforts on three subject areas, as follows: (1) Determining how to identify and disseminate the best procurement practice throughout DoD; (2) Improving the sole source proposal preparation, evaluation, and negotiation process; (3) Streamline the competitive source selection process. The PAT draft report was widely disseminated throughout DoD, and its recommendations have been approved with some noted exceptions, as noted in the memorandum of 9 February 95. The methodology of action of the PAT team is dealt with in a more detailed form in the body of the report. The emphasis on risk management in lieu of risk avoidance is a major theme in the recommendations contained within the report. (RWJ)
