Acquisition Management

Acquisition Management Division (AMD) is responsible for executing and administering BSEE and BOEM contracts and financial assistance agreements. By collaborating with its customer organizations, AMD creates quality business solutions that help to accomplish the mission goals of the Bureaus. AMD provides acquisition and financial assistance policy guidance, cost/price analysis, and advice to procurement/program personnel. AMD conducts acquisition management reviews and other internal control reviews of procurement activities throughout the year.

AMD administers the purchase line of the BSEE and BOEM charge card programs, as well as the competitive sourcing programs. AMD manages and administers all Federal Acquisition Certification programs for the BSEE and BOEM acquisition community, as well as BSEE’s Contracting Officer’s Certificate of Appointment Program. AMD’s Small Business Program maximizes opportunities for small, disadvantaged, and women-owned businesses, as well as historically black colleges and universities as both prime contractors and subcontractors.

AMD supports shared procurement services to implement innovative and creative procurement solutions by using the following methods and techniques:

  • Use of both the General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedules and NASA’s Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) contracts as part of the Bureau’s day-to- day operations.
  • Utilize DOI strategic sourcing initiatives, such as the DOI Cloud Hosting Service contract, as well as DOI-wide Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA’s).
  • Coordinate with other agencies to leverage expertise for the use of Strategic Sourcing Initiatives through interagency agreements with Department of Energy (DOE), NOAA, and GSA.
