Review of Two Proposed Automatic Data Processing Procurements by the Social Security Administration
IMTEC-85-7: Published: Apr 10, 1985. Publicly Released: May 10, 1985.
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO evaluated two proposed Social Security Administration (SSA) procurements for automatic data processing equipment.
On March 5, 1985, SSA cancelled the solicitation for communications processors because it is considering alternative ways to satisfy this requirement. SSA is not currently soliciting proposals for either procurement. GAO found no evidence that SSA actions in determining the scope of competition for the two procurements warranted the removal of the SSA delegation of procurement authority.
