A-76 Contracting Out Issue ResolvedClick to read article.
Language contained in the Transportation/Treasury appropriations bill has resolved the long standing controversy over OMB's contracting out bulletin.
"Senate and House conference committee members last night passed the appropriations bill with language changing the revised Office of Management and Budget Circular A-76. The change is that in all public- and private-sector competitions for more than 10 positions, a private-sector offer would have to be 10 percent or $10 million less than the government’s offer to be considered. OMB had revised the circular to delete the cost differential for competitions of fewer than 65 positions."
