Tim DiNapoli, Acquisition and Sourcing Management Director, GAO

Agencies have a special name for projects where a subcontractor does at least 70 percent of the work. There's also a special rule to help agencies track how the money flows in those types of contracts to try to minimize the risk of overpayments. Tim DiNapoli is director of acquisition and sourcing management issues at the Government Accountability Office. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he explained how well agencies follow that that special rule -- which is important, because three agencies spent about $190 billion on those types of contracts in fiscal 2013.

He's optimistic about the future of procurement in 2015, but a look into his Magic 8 Ball said "The future is still unclear; ask again later."
