Contracting out DoD's Household Goods Functions

  • 1.  Contracting out DoD's Household Goods Functions

    Posted 01-17-2019 09:26
    USTRANSCOM submitted a Request for Information (RFI) on Fed Biz Ops asking for respondents to reply with their interest in, and capability to perform DoD's household goods functions.  The RFI seemed to imply that USTRANSCOM was interested in a commercial capability to perform both the current DoD role, as well as responsibility for a move manager role.  This is a HUGE change to the current program.

    If USTRANSCOM were to move forward with this effort, do you think it will significantly impact your business?  Do you see a role for your company under a DoD HHG program that is fully contracted out?  Are there advantages to this kind of contract for the Service Member?  Disadvantages?  Is your company willing to participate in this new paradigm for DoD HHG?

    Let us know your thoughts.
