5603.104-4-90 Ombudsman for Procurement Integrity

(Revised June 2018)

Recognizing the contracting officer has the primary responsibility for Procurement Integrity, the Ombudsman will provide a neutral, informal, confidential and independent alternative for employees, managers, and customers to seek assistance in resolving procurement integrity issues. The primary function of the Ombudsman is to support acquisition personnel by acting as an independent sounding board to hear concerns about specific procurement integrity issues and to assist in the resolution of the concerns.

The Special Operations Forces Acquisition, Technology, & Logistics (SOF AT&L) Military Deputy to the Acquisition Executive (MDAE) is designated as the USSOCOM Ombudsman for Procurement Integrity and can be contacted at OMBUDSMAN@socom.mil .
