Congressional limit on Pentagon job competitions

Defense Authorization bill

Section 331 - Fiscal Year 2002 Limitations on Workforce Reviews This section would limit the number of studies that can be reviewed for possible outsourcing. The committee is increasingly concerned with the outsourcing process and believes the agencies and services are under too much budgetary pressure to initiate and complete studies.

The committee does not support the Department's initiative to conduct studies on an additional 3,200 functions in fiscal year 2002. The committee is pleased, however, with the Department's recognition of the large costs associated with conducting a study.

The committee recommends limiting the number of functions to be studied to the funding available to initiate and conduct a study. In addition, the committee is limiting the number of functions the Department of Navy can study to the number of studies identified in DoD's program budget decision.
