GAO commented on the Air Force and the Army Corps of Engineers failure to comply with certain Federal Acquisition Regulation provisions. GAO noted that the all-encompassing work statement contained in the indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contracts did not reasonably describe the scope of the services, and therefore did not provide potential offerors notice of the work that would be within the scope of the resulting contract. As a result, the solicitation did not comport with the Competition in Contracting Act's requirements to obtain full and open competition in procuring property and services.
