The Administration’s Acquisition Policy Priorities Will be More Clearly Defined:
There have already been policy documents from the Administration on IT acquisition, a key part of an overall management agenda. Expect 2018 to see identified leaders, like GSA’s Emily Murphy to identify more priorities and work closely with the Office of Federal Procurement Policy to expand programs like Strategic Sourcing and perhaps create new ones aimed at reducing duplication. This may sound wonky, but how many companies were prepared ahead of time for the e-commerce project we’re now wading into. Failure to pay attention to the policy that shapes your market means that you might not have much of a market to participate in some day.
As always, Allen Federal is here to help make sense of it all – and help shape new programs. Don’t hesitate to reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions on these or other government acquisition issues.
