Analysis of the Head of the Contracting Activity (HCA) oversight responsibilities within the Naval Supply System Command (NAVSUP)

By William G. Sproule, Kathryn Gonzales and Hazel Sumpter


Joint Applied ProjectThe purpose of this paper is to evaluate the Head of the Contracting (HCA) oversight responsibilities within the Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP). Statutes as implemented by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) (and lower level regulations) mandate the oversight responsibilities of the HCA. This responsibility is further delegated in NAVSUP instructions and policy and other higher-level policy. The objective of this paper is to establish a single source that identifies the regulations, instructions, policies, etc. that promulgate the HCA oversight responsibility within NAVSUP. The end result of the paper is to analyze the challenges associated with implementing the HCA oversight function, whether this oversight is being performed in the required manner, and whether it is delegated to the appropriate level
