Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Defense Logistics Agency's (DLA) procurement to publish and distribute the federal supply catalog using compact disk read-only memory technology, focusing on whether DLA: (1) followed the Federal Information Resources Management Regulation (FIRMR) and the General Services Administration's (GSA) guidance in conducting its requirements analysis; and (2) encouraged the use of nondevelopmental items to the maximum extent practicable.

GAO found that: (1) DLA adequately identified and documented the functions that it required to meet its mission; (2) DLA correctly stated its requirements in terms of the functions to be performed and the performance required, rather than how the functions should be performed; (3) the DLA alternatives analysis adequately identified and evaluated alternatives to meet its needs and adequately supported the alternative it selected; and (4) DLA encouraged the use of nondevelopmental items to the maximum extent practicable.
