LTMC currently conducts Acquisition Management Review Oversight of Procurement functions required across the NIH ten Offices of Acquisition and other Government agencies that use NIH contract vehicles (e.g. NITAAC GWAC contracts) for task orders, firm fixed price, time and materials, and labor-hour contracts. LTMC reviews pre-award, award, and contract administration files to assess the quality of acquisitions and their compliance with federal and departmental acquisition regulations and policies, SOPs, and NIH policies. Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) input relating to each of these files is reviewed for accuracy and the contracts under review may be for research and development as well as supplies and services that may be comprised of award types for simplified acquisitions, commercial acquisitions, negotiated contracts, Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA), BPA calls, IDIQ contracts, lease acquisitions, Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) orders, task orders, delivery orders and modifications.
From 2016-2019, LTMC supported the Purchase Card Improvement Program of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which strove to ensure their existing Purchase Card Program Cardholders and Approving Officials were adhering to regulations and procedures. LTMC performed independent reviews of CMS component’s cardholder purchases and determined areas where improvement was needed. LTMC then developed and provided training with the goal of correcting any deficiencies in the PCPs (formerly known as the GSA SmartPay Purchase Card Program).
The Health Resources & Services Administration Office of Acquisition Management and Policy (OAMP) has contracted with LTMC since 2018 to provide Acquisition Process Improvement Consulting Services. LTMC developed tools, resources, and pilot training to enhance the skills of its acquisition workforce through the use of research, surveys, interviews, and stakeholder engagement. The agencies’ current training focus is to provide courses through which their acquisition workforces may attain or maintain their Federal Acquisition Certifications (FAC).
