Abstract: As the Department of Defense (DoD) seeks to transform itself for the 21st century, it has sought new and innovative methods to increase the effectiveness of its acquisition processes. One mechanism that attempts to accomplish this goal has been the expanded use of indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts. Questions can be raised about the best way to organize and manage an IDIQ contract. In order to develop a better understanding of this rapidly-growing contracting arrangement, we drew upon data from an electronic survey of members of the Professional Services Council (PSC), a national trade association of the government professional and technical services industry. The survey was developed as an empirical assessment of one population of firms experienced with the IDIQ contract vehicle. Our report analyzes the results of the survey and offers suggestions based on our findings.
