A report provided recommendations for future flu vaccine contracting procedures.

The contracting procedures described in existing Federal procurement regulations are adequate and should be followed to the extent possible for future vaccine purchases. Problems which arose in past purchases of vaccine by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare resulted from deviations from standard contracting procedures necessitated by special legislation. Future deviations from standard procurement procedures should be considered only when existing procedures would not result in timely vaccine procurements. Moreover, any deviation from Federal procurement regulations should be made in accordance with the regulatory provisions for obtaining a deviation.
