How agencies seek to shape the acquisition process
The federal acquisition process has traditionally been a protracted one, but agencies are looking for creative solutions to simplify the process of getting the tools they need and attract an innovative workforce.
Government officials talked about the future of acquisition strategy and ways to improve its effectiveness on June 8 at the ACQUIRE conference sponsored by FCW.
“We are now really looking at things very differently than we have in the past,” said Mary Davie, assistant commissioner for the Office of Integrated Technology Services at the General Services Administration, during a panel discussion. She added that it is important to bring functional experts together find a better path forward.
