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
  • Preceded FAIR Act and Bush agenda: 1966
