North American industry classification system (NAICS).

December 8, 2016
[Washington, DC] : U.S. Census Bureau
1 online resource
NAICS was initially developed and subsequently revised by Mexico's INEGI, Statistics Canada, and the U.S. Economic Classification Policy Committee (the latter acting on behalf of OMB). The goal of this collaboration was to produce common industry definitions for Canada, Mexico, and the United States. These common definitions facilitate economic analyses of the economies of the three North American countries. The statistical agencies in the three countries produce information on inputs and outputs, industrial performance, productivity, unit labor costs, and employment. NAICS, which is based on a production-oriented concept, ensures maximum usefulness of industrial statistics for these and similar purposes.

Each year, federal agencies obligate over $400 billion on goods and services, but they miss out on savings when they do not leverage their collective buying power. In 2005, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) directed agencies to leverage spending through strategic sourcing. In 2014, OFPP, an office in OMB, announced its category management initiative, which is intended to further streamline and manage entire categories of spending across the government more like a single enterprise. GAO was asked to examine the current status of the FSSI program and the extent to which OFPP has incorporated lessons learned from the program into its category management initiative. This report addresses (1) savings and other benefits the FSSI program has achieved, and (2) lessons identified and incorporated into OFPP's category management initiative. GAO analyzed FSSI spending, savings, and adoption data for all seven active FSSIs for fiscal years 2011 through 2015; reviewed OMB, OFPP, Leadership Council, and GSA strategic sourcing and category management guidance; and interviewed GSA and FSSI program officials and OFPP staff. To increase potential savings, GAO is making 6 recommendations, including that OFPP ensure agencies submit transition plans,monitor their use, and ensure agency specific targets and performance metrics to measure adoption of FSSI and category management solutions are set.

"GAO-17-17."
DOD is the government's largest purchaser of contractor-provided services. In 2008, Congress required DOD to compile and review an annual inventory of its contracted services to identify the number of contractors performing services and the functions contractors performed. In 2011, Congress required DOD to use that inventory to inform certain decision-making processes, including workforce planning and budgeting. GAO has previously reported on the challenges DOD faces in compiling, reviewing, and using the inventory. Since 2011, GAO made 13 recommendations intended to improve DOD's use of the inventory. Of these, DOD has yet to fully address 8 open recommendations. Congress included a provision in statute for GAO to report on DOD's required reviews and plans to use the inventory. This report assesses the extent to which DOD components (1) reviewed contracts and activities in the fiscal year 2014 inventory of contracted services, and (2) developed plans to use the inventory for decision making. GAO reviewed relevant laws and guidance and 40 components' inventory review certification letters, and interviewed DOD acquisition, manpower, and programming officials. GAO is not making new recommendations in this report.
