GAO presents an audit guide to assist federal officials in evaluating the appropriateness of noncompetitive contract decisions.

GAO believes that significant benefits such as cost savings, better solutions to the government's problems relating to its procurement needs, and increased public confidence in government can result from the use of this audit guide. The guide provides: (1) background information for an understanding of competitive requirements and procedures; and (2) essential information needed to determine the adequacy of efforts to seek competition in awarding noncompetitive contracts for goods or services. The structured format should be particularly helpful for systematic identification of problem areas in the representative samples of these contracts.
