Audit of HHS's Contracting Compliance for the Acquisition of Information Technology

HHS is one of the largest contracting agencies in the Federal Government. In FY 2020, HHS obligated $3.4 billion to the acquisition of information technology (IT). HHS has one of the largest dollar investments in major IT systems and the second-largest number of IT investments in the Federal Government. The Federal Acquisition Regulation guides the acquisition process by which executive agencies of the Federal Government acquire goods and services by contract. We will perform a series of audits (three OpDivs). At each OpDiv, we will examine one vendor with contracts awarded for the acquisition of IT exceeding $10 million during FYs 2018 through 2020. We will determine whether HHS OpDivs are administering certain IT contracts in accordance with Federal statutes, regulations, and HHS policies and procedures.
