Abstract: Simplified acquisition procedures (SAPs) are a fundamental and ubiquitous component of federal contracting and are executed by acquisition professionals at all levels of government. Because of their relative simplicity, procurements using SAPs are often left to less experienced personnel who are in the inchoate stages of developing their skills and knowledge. Knowledge management represents the effective organization, dissemination, and utilization of an enterprise's knowledge resources. When designed and executed with sagacity, knowledge management can be used to enhance an organization's effectiveness in executing its mission with consistent and efficacious expertise. The goal of this research is to enable a contracting function to employ knowledge management to gain a competitive advantage in procurements using SAPs by leveraging existing databases, expertise, available training, and other sources of enterprise knowledge.
