FAS goes against GSA IG recommendation, to continue to use labor pricing tools

“The General Services Administration’s internal watchdog recommended the agency’s acquisition service stop using two comparative labor-pricing tools because of flawed data, but the agency pushed back saying it planned to keep the tools in use.”

“In a late December report, GSA’s inspector general recommended that the Federal Acquisition Service stop using the Contract-Awarded Labor Category tool (CALC) and Contract Operations Division Contractors Database labor category pricing tool (CODCD).

The data and calculations, said the IG, are so flawed, they’re dulling the federal government’s buying power edge, as well as possibly resulting in overpayment on contracts.”

“FAS Acting Commissioner Julie Dunne agreed with the IG that the CALC and CODCD labor pricing tools are not the best. She also concurred on the need for better guidance and pricing comparison capabilities, but Dunne stopped short of ditching the tools altogether…” Read the full article here.
