SEC. 803. DISPLAY OF ANNUAL BUDGET REQUIREMENTS FOR PROCUREMENT OF CONTRACT SERVICES AND RELATED CLARIFYING TECHNICAL AMENDMENTS.

    (a) Codification of Requirement for Specification of Amounts Requested for Procurement of Contract Services.--

    (1) IN GENERAL.--Chapter 9 of title 10, United States Code, is amended by inserting after section 234 the following new section: ``235. Procurement of contract services: specification of amounts requested in budget

    ``(a) Submission With Annual Budget Justification Materials.--In the budget justification materials submitted to Congress in support of the Department of Defense budget for any fiscal year (as submitted with the budget of the President under section 1105(a) of title 31), the Secretary of Defense shall include the information described in subsection (b) with respect to the procurement of contract services.

    ``(b) Information Provided.--For each budget account, the materials submitted shall clearly and separately identify--

    ``(1) the amount requested for the procurement of contract services for each Department of Defense component, installation, or activity; and

    ``(2) the number of full-time contractor employees (or the equivalent of full-time in the case of part-time contractor employees) projected and justified for each Department of Defense component, installation, or activity based on the inventory of contracts for services required by subsection (c) of section 2330a of this title and the review required by subsection (e) of such section.

    ``(c) Contract Services Defined.--In this section, the term `contract services'--

    ``(1) means services from contractors; but

    ``(2) excludes services relating to research and development and services relating to military construction.''.

    (2) CLERICAL AMENDMENT.--The table of sections at the beginning of such chapter is amended by adding at the end the following new item:

 

   ``235. Procurement of contract services: specification of amounts requested in budget.''.

    (3) REPEAL OF SUPERSEDED PROVISION.--Section 806 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Public Law 110-181; 10 U.S.C. 221 note) is repealed.

    (b) Clarification of Contract Services Review and Planning Requirements.--Section 2330a(e) of title 10, United States Code, is amended in paragraph (4) by inserting after ``plan'' the following: ``, including an enforcement mechanism and approval process,''.

    (c) Comptroller General Report on Inventory.--Not later than 180 days after the date on which the Secretary of Defense submits to Congress the inventory required by section 2330a(c) of title 10, United States Code, in each of 2010, 2011 and 2012, the Comptroller General of the United States shall submit to the Committees on Armed Services of the Senate and the House of Representatives a report on the inventory so submitted, with such findings and recommendations as the Comptroller General considers appropriate.

Display of annual budget requirements for procurement of contract services and related clarifying technical amendments (sec. 803)

   The House bill contained a provision (sec. 803) that would codify and expand the requirement in section 806 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Public Law 110-181) for the Secretary of Defense to include information on contracts for services in the materials submitted to Congress in support of the President's budget request.

   The Senate amendment contained no similar provision.

   The Senate recedes with an amendment that would modify the reporting requirement and require the Comptroller General to conduct a review of the Department's efforts to compile an annual inventory of contract services in accordance with the requirements of section 2330a of title 10, United States Code.

   The conferees note that including in the annual budget submission the total amounts for the procurement of services and the number of full-time equivalents requested by each Department of Defense component, installation or activity should provide greater clarity on amounts proposed to be spent annually on contract services. In addition, specific break-outs of how that money is obligated for each type of service should be reflected in the annual contract inventories compiled by the military departments and defense agencies. The information in the budget submission, together with the detail provided in the annual inventories, should provide the information needed for improved oversight by both the Department and Congress of the procurement of contractor services.

 

House Report 111-166 - NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2010

SECTION 803--DISPLAY OF ANNUAL BUDGET REQUIREMENTS FOR PROCUREMENT OF CONTRACT SERVICES AND RELATED CLARIFYING TECHNICAL AMENDMENTS

This section would codify section 806 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Public Law 110-181) by adding a new section at the end of chapter 9 of title 10, United States Code. This section would also add a requirement to include contractor employee data based on the service contract inventory required by section 807 of Public Law 110-181 in the annual budget justification documents. Furthermore, this section would amend the review and planning requirements process in section 807 of Public Law 110-181 to require an approval process related to conversion of functions based on the inventory. The committee notes that the amendments made by this section should assist the Department of Defense in its planning, programming, and budgeting for service contracts.
