  1. Background Our leadership is concerned that we have too many warrants, too many people signing their own work. Audits indicated the number of warrants contributes to increased risk; however, the auditors provided no insight as to what the proper number of warrants should be, given our workload. I am now charged with reducing the number of warrants, implementing a workflow wherein (number of) contract specialists prepare and submit their work for review and signature by (smaller number of) warranted contracting officers. Request I realize that the definition of "viable workload" varies. One 1102 may work full time on a single contract, compared to others that write (and/or administer) hundreds of contracts each year; however, in your experience, when reviewing and signing contract specialist work, how many contracts should contracting officers be able to handle each year? Do any of you have experience you can share, insights that can help me better plan the ratio of contract specialists to contracting officers, criteria to help determine staffing requirements and thereby best plan reasonable workload balance? Do any of you know of any research studies on this topic that I might read in order to help inform better decisions? I appreciate any advice you can share. Thank you!
