Intro: Are multiple award contracts out of control?

The proliferation of multiple award contracts across the government has reached a tipping point. The Office of Federal Procurement Policy is on a listening tour trying to figure out how to tame this unwieldy beast. In our special report, Contract Overload, Federal News Radio's Jason Miller explores all sides of this complex issue. What is the cost to industry to continually bid on these contracts?

Why do agencies believe they need their own MACs instead of using contracts provided by the General Services Administration, or other government-wide acquisition contracts? And, what, if anything, can OFPP do to reel in the explosion in redundant contracts?
