In FY2015, the HHS Service Acquisition Initiative (SAI) Teams will review services contracts and focus on three categories of special interest functions which have been identified as a result of the FY2013 and FY 2014 analyses. The special interest areas are as follows:
- OMB Special Interest Functions – based upon Product and Service Codes (PSC) designated by OMB/OFPP as being of high-risk federal-wide;
- HHS Special Interest Functions – HHS supplemented the OMB list of Special Interest Functions by identifying the PSCs where HHS had a high overall dollar- value of service contract awards as reported in its FY2014 inventory; a particular management interest, such as studies and legal services; or individual contracts of a high-value; and
- “Other Services” Acquisitions – based upon HHS’ FY 2014 acquisition spending by the generic services (PSC) designations (i.e., R499 – other professional services; R699 – other administrative; R799 – other management support services; and PSC code D399, other ADP and teleconferencing); several of which were within the top ten highest overall dollar-value PSCs for FY2014.
