Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed: (1) whether the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established the proper controls to ensure high-quality, cost-efficient and timely contract work; and (2) EPA efforts to improve contract management.

GAO found that EPA has: (1) increased its resources for contract management and generally strengthened requirements, training, and certification of contracting officers; (2) strengthened its project officer system, but project officer training is still in process; (3) provided additional technical guidance and assessments by issuing instructions and policy statements on contract award and administration; and (4) identified active contracts that have several deficiencies in post-award contract administration, such as improper file documentation.
