Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed federal agencies' implementation of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act (FASA) when ordering under multiple-award contracts, focusing on: (1) whether federal agencies were providing a fair opportunity for contractors to receive orders under multiple-award contracts; (2) how service fees assessed on interagency orders compared with agencies' costs to process such orders; and (3) if multiple-award contracts affected federal contracting opportunities for small businesses.
