What will make category management trickle down?
If a category management memo falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does anyone care that it fell?
Wrong analogy? Well you get it because that’s the sentiment many are asking as the Obama administration continues its full-court press with changing how agencies buy products and services. Despite multiple memos, including the latest on July 1 around data breach services, and now a proposed rule to all but mandate the use of strategic sourcing contracts, there is a growing question of how does the Office of Federal Procurement Policy ensure the requirements trickle down far enough?
