SOAE, DDAE, MDAE, DOP, DDOP, PEO, HCD/FCOs, LNOs, Attorney Advisors, SSAC Pool Members, etc. may sign one annually (see Annual Non-Disclosure Agreement) and provide to KOs upon request for the contract file, rather than signing one on a procurement-by-procurement basis.


5603.104-4-90 Ombudsman for Procurement Integrity
(Revised August 2016)
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.
Colonel John Vannoy, Special Operations Research, Development, and Acquisition Center (SOF AT&L) is designated as the USSOCOM Ombudsman for Procurement Integrity and can be contacted at OMBUDSMAN@socom.mil. If Col. Vannoy is participating in a source selection or any other activity that may present a conflict in performing Procurement Integrity duties and responsibilities, then the Deputy Director, SOF AT&L, will perform the duties of the Procurement Integrity Ombudsman for that particular acquisition.
