Partial SPF fails in most DMARC reports

Questions:
Why <spf>fail</spf> in the 'policy evaluated' section (far below)?
Do I need our spf record to 'include' a domain of yours as well as the current reference to ip4:148.105.8.0/21 CIDR address block we currently have published?

 

Is it possible you to include a sender and envelope_from identifier set to match the header_from identifier?  We are getting mismatches between envelope_from and header_from reported in Dmarc reports such as Outlook.

 

Is there ANYTHING we could adjust in our DNS to improve evaluation of a record like this?
