2019 PO0 Office of Contracting and Procurement

Thursday, July 12, 2018

The Office of Contracting and Procurement’s (OCP) mission is to procure quality goods and services through a streamlined procurement process that is transparent and responsive to the needs of government agencies and the public, and ensures all purchases are conducted fairly and impartially.

Summary of Services

OCP manages the purchase of $5.2 billion in goods, services and construction annually, on behalf of over 76 District agencies. In its authority under the Procurement Practices Reform Act of 2010 (PPRA), OCP is responsible for both establishing procurement processing standards that conform to regulations and monitoring the effectiveness of procurement service delivery. Procurement processing and management is enhanced by OCP specialists who are assigned to agency worksites to directly collaborate with program staff throughout the entire procurement process. OCP core services include the DC Supply Schedule, Purchase card (P-Card) program, and the surplus property disposition and re-utilization program. And OCP’s learning and certification programs support ongoing development of staff proficiency and procurement service quality.
