[Excerpt] On behalf of the AFL-CIO, 1 am writing to urge you to reject efforts to revive the A-76 privatization process when the Committee considers the FY 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) later this week. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the Department of Defense (DOD) Inspector General have repeatedly found that no reliable methods have been established to accurately measure either costs or savings due to contracting out. and that the cost of carrying out the studies themselves often exceeds any of the alleged savings.
