FYI: DoD contractor headcounts now available…sort of


Two  Defense Department agencies announced the release of their fiscal year 2008 contractor inventories in today’s Federal Register.

The inventory for the Missle Defense Agency, which posted its headcount here,  doesn’t appear to include much information about the number of contractors performing the work. In fact, that column appears to be blank for most of the contracts listed in the 210 page document.

The Defense Contract Management Agency also posted a notice about its list, but at the time this is being posted, the list isn’t on the agency’s site. The notice says it has 30 days to post its contractor inventory.

In the 2008 Defense authorization bill, Congress required Defense agencies to take a headcount of the contractor employees performing services work in their offices. The goal is to grasp how many contractors are actually employed by DoD to improve management of the contracts and assist the department’s efforts to convert some of that work to federal employee positions.
