Business and Contracts

DOJ Main building with flag

The Department of Justice offers business and contracting opportunities to support its efforts in enforcing the law and defending the interests of the United States according to the law; ensuring public safety against threats foreign and domestic; providing federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; seeking just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and ensuring fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.


Management and oversight of the Department of Justice's acquisition function is the responsibility of the Chief Acquisition Officer (CAO) and the Senior Procurement Executive (SPE). The CAO is the Department's top acquisition executive and has the authority, accountability and responsibility for Department-wide acquisition decision-making. This includes the development of goals, guidelines and policies, measurement and evaluation of the performance of the Department's various acquisition organizations. The SPE assists the CAO in the performance of her duties with regards to the acquisition function.

The Office of Acquisition Management supports the CAO and SPE in developing and communicating policy; implementing the requirements of pertinent statutes, regulations, and other guidance; promoting effective business practices to achieve public policy objectives; and ensuring that acquisition personnel are properly trained and have a clear understanding of the mission and objectives of Department acquisition management programs.
