08/30/2021 - Architect of the Capitol Audit of the Cannon House Office Building Project's Subcontractor Bids and Awards Audit - Open Recommendations
We recommend that the Cannon House Office Building Renewal (CHOBr) Project team consider updating its Project Management Plan to include procedures to ensure that, for each scope of work, the Architect of the Capitol (AOC) has maintained written documentation of: • The conditions for satisfaction in situations where the AOC received fewer than three bids; specifically, the steps it took to evaluate the bid amounts in the absence of preferred competition levels. • The Contracting Officer’s (CO’s) approval of the Construction Manager as the Constructor’s (CMc) rationale in situations where the CMc recommended hiring a subcontractor that was not the lowest bidder. • The CMc’s compliance with the Contracting Officer Representative’s solicitation requirements, which require the CMc to perform an analysis of the proposals received and to provide a recommendation to the CHOBr Project team regarding which subcontractor to select based on this analysis.
To ensure consistency during the subcontractor bid and award process, we recommend that the Cannon House Office Building Renewal (CHOBr) Project team develop a checklist or other template describing the steps the CHOBr Project team should take to meet satisfaction requirements in situations where the Construction Manager as the Constructor obtained fewer than three bids for a scope of work
