Reuse of Agency Contract Deliverables

Create a centralized contract deliverable respository that would be made available for reuse by those requesting new contract dollars. The concept would allow paid government work to be leveraged, offer the opportunity for benchmarking with similar work, promote baseline determination if a contract is actually needed, leverage innovative ideas. There are many contract deliverable similiarities internal and external to government agencies. An authorized, controlled automated repository could be built to prompt users with questions to guide them through the request process and serve up the most related contract deliverable solutions for reuse. The repository would include user profile access permissions designated by their specific Agencies, which would allow internal, external, or joint search capabilities. The cost avoidance could potentially range in billions of dollars. The idea offers a simplistic approach to a government-wide issue that impacts every Agency throughout most departments.
