Special Report on Best Practices and Lessons Learned for DoD Contracting Officials in the Pandemic Environment [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Document: "This special report provides best practices and lessons learned identified in audit reports related to disaster responses. From 2006 through 2020, personnel from the DoD Office of Inspector General and the Service Audit Agencies conducted 52 audits related to disaster relief response. Of the 52 reports, 36 were focused on oversight of contracting related to disaster response activities. We analyzed the audit reports and determined several best practices and lessons learned related to contracting from the DoD's previous disaster relief responses. In addition, this special report provides potential procurement fraud schemes and tips to avoid potential fraudulent activity. We recognize that DoD contracting officials are in a unique, and ever-changing situation. However, the best practices, lessons learned, and fraud awareness highlighted in this special report should assist DoD contracting officials in providing better contract oversight and avoiding potential fraudulent activity."
