Wood Parker, TASC Worried About OCI Rule Changes

TASC has released a statement voicing concerns of rule changes proposed by the Department of Defense on organizational conflicts of interest (OCI) in major defense acquisition programs.

The firm, formerly part of Northrop Grumman, notes the moves as “inconsistent with the goals of the government’s Weapons Systems Acquisition Reform Act (WSARA) of 2009.”

The firm is concerned that the changes could “increase the potential for impaired objectivity.”

“The proposed rule has a strong preference for mitigation of OCI rather than avoidance, ” said Wood Parker, president and CEO of TASC.  “In our view, the best path forward is an overall policy emphasis on OCI avoidance – with only occasional mitigation in truly exceptional circumstances, as specifically called for in WSARA.”
