A-76 Competitive Sourcing moratorium for civilian agencies - expired?

Recommended Posts

I read that the A-76 Competitive Sourcing moratorium for private-public competitions/studies for civilian agencies expired on Sep. 30, 2012. There is a provision in Obama's proposed budget to extend the moratorium, but so far, no action taken on this budget by congress. Can someone tell me, is the moratorium technically lifted or not? Is the requirement to do A-76 studies in effect or not?

Also, does anyone have knowledge of whether A-76 studies are required to be done if a federal agency is seeking to "outsource" commercial positions to another federal agency?

Since we don't have a FY13 budget yet, and we are under a CR for the FY12 budget, it appears that, since an agency cannot spend more than what it was budgeted in FY12, and can only spend funds for the purposes expressly allowed for in the FY12 budget, then, since the FY12 budget prohibited spending on A-76 public-private competition studies, that prohibition is still in force under the CR.

But what about interservice support agreements (ISSAs), where one federal agency outsources to another federal agency? Is there still a requirement to do a cost comparison study?
