Department of Energy: Improvements Needed to Strengthen Strategic Planning for the Acquisition Workforce, Report to the Committee on Armed Services, U.S. Senate [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Highlights: "DOE's [Department of Energy] federal acquisition workforce is responsible for managing risks throughout the contracting, or acquisition, process. GAO [Government Accountability Office] designated DOE contract and project management as a high-risk area because of DOE's record of inadequate contract management. Senate Report No. 116-48 accompanying the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 includes a provision for GAO to review issues affecting DOE's acquisition workforce. This report examines (1) the positions included in DOE's acquisition workforce and the extent to which this workforce receives acquisition-related training and (2) the extent to which DOE has implemented leading practices for effective strategic planning for its acquisition workforce."
