DoD needs to share lessons

The Defense Department generally is doing a good job of using commercial best practices for implementing outsourcing programs, but it needs a framework for sharing lessons learned, according to a General Accounting Office report.

The report, "Information Technology: DOD Needs to Leverage Lessons Learned from Its Outsourcing Projects," reviewed five major outsourcing initiatives, including the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet.

The watchdog agency found the agencies collectively implemented 88 percent of recommended performance-based contracting practices, but did not have a mechanism to share results.
