Abstract : This study was conducted to examine problems identified by GAO during the 1985-1992 time frame in the area of subcontract management within DoD, specifically, inadequate subcontract evaluation and subcontractor defective pricing. Questionnaires were sent to DCAA auditors nationwide and DoD prime contractors and subcontractors in California. The study concludes that the problems of subcontract estimating system deficiencies and subcontractor defective pricing continue to be major discrepancies within DoD.
