Rendon, Rene G.
MetadataShow full item record
The contract management process continues to be an increasingly important function in the federal government, and specifically in the Department of Defense (DoD). The DoD, which is the federal government’s largest contracting agency, continues to increase its level of public spending for goods and services. For example, between fiscal years 2000 and 2010, the DoD’s obligations on contracts have more than doubled to over $370 billion. Even though the defense procurement budget has increased substantially, the procurement workforce has remained the same size since 2001. Prior to 2001, from 1989 to 2000, the defense procurement workforce was downsized by nearly 50 percent.
