Outsourcing and commercial activities

Outsourcing and Commercial Activities

FEDLINK Membership Meeting

October 17, 2002


Competitive sourcing

Competitive Sourcing

  • 1 of 5 issues on President’s Management Agenda

  • White House goal to achieve 15% by end of FY03

  • Baseline set by all eligible “commercial activities” from FY2000 FAIR Act inventory

  • Eligibility based on current FAIR Act inventory

  • “Compete”= to determine if government function is more effectively carried out by federal personnel


Fair act inventory

FAIR Act Inventory

  • Federal Activities Inventory Reform Act initiated publication of commercial activities in 1998

  • Annually identify functions not “inherently governmental” and publish lists on Websites

  • Gives private sector basis for demanding competition for functions “commercially available”

  • Force and effect greatly increased under Bush Administration’s high priority and “quota” system


A 76 role in competitive sourcing

A-76 Role in Competitive Sourcing

  • Preceded FAIR Act and Bush agenda: 1966

  • Over the years, emphasized (or not) by Presidents or agency heads

  • Currently determines whether commercial function will be performed by government or contract staff

  • Note: Activities of 10 FTE or smaller may be privatized without competition


Commercial activities panel
