There was a $3 million dollar spending limitation for competitive sourcing activities in FY 2006 and a $2.5 million dollar limitation has been proposed for FY 2007.  Although the Green Plan must include the Agency’s entire commercial inventory and activities are prioritized, work does not proceed beyond the limitation without Congressional concurrence.

o

Program Budgeting – Annual budget projections are based on cost trends in the Federal sector and any existing funding (Appropriations and/or USDA) directions.  The average incremental cost of public-private competitions in the Federal sector is $3200-$5100 per FTE studied.  The cost is largely dependent on the technical complexity of the function and the number of FTEs involved.  These averages are used to determine initial budget requests and adjustments are made as necessary during the feasibility/pre-planning process.

The Agency’s average study cost has been approximately $1800-2000 per FTE

Performance and Accountability Monitoring – Results are monitored in 3 ways:
