CONTRACTING - ALL ARTICLES
The Bush administration will press to let agencies keep savings achieved through public-private competitions, Office of Management and Budget Director Mitch Daniels said Wednesday.
The public-private competition process may not cause cuts in pay and benefits for federal workers, according to a new General Accounting Office report.
The Office of Management and Budget has ordered agencies to submit lists of jobs considered “inherently governmental” with their 2001 FAIR Act inventories--a move that could lead to more outsourcing.
As agencies seek to meet a Bush administration mandate to put thousands of jobs up for competition with private firms, many are considering simply converting some of their jobs to contract positions without competitions.
