The Office of Acquisition Management Services (OAMS), within OASAM's Business Operations Center (BOC), establishes the procurement and grant policies, regulations, and procedures for the Department of Labor (DOL). OAMS implements responsibilities of the DOL Competition Advocate, and provides staff support to the Procurement Review Board (PRB). OAMS also implements the procurement oversight functions of DOL, including consolidation of DOL's Annual Acquisition Plan and Procurement Forecast, managing DOL Debarments and Suspensions, EPS administration, conducting procurement management reviews of regional and national offices, maintenance of all procurement data on the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) and grant data on the Federal Assistance Award Data System (FAADS), representing DOL on the Civilian Agency Acquisition Council (CAAC) and the Procurement Executive on other procurement and grant related intra- and inter-agency task forces. Through OAMS' Division of Cost Determination, OAMS is also responsible for negotiating indirect cost rates and cost allocation plans with DOL grantees and contractors, using the applicable cost principles on behalf of the Federal government. Further, it is also responsible for doing pre-award reviews and audit resolution of indirect cost audit findings.
