Advocating Common Sense in Government Procurement
The Coalition for Government Procurement is the single most effective voice for commercial service and product companies selling in the federal market. For 35 years, the Coalition has brought together public and private sector procurement leaders to work towards the mutual goal of common sense acquisition. Members have access to the latest federal compliance and policy information, which serves as the foundation of a successful government business.
The crucial missing piece in GSA's goals
Today marks the launch of a new blog focusing on GWACs and GSA. I want to thank Federal Times for the opportunity to expand the dialogue on interagency contracting and in particular GSA’s role in our procurement system. What better way to kick things off but to focus on GSA’s Draft Strategic Plan for FY 2014-2018 and what it says and doesn’t say about the future role of GSA?
On December 20, 2013, GSA posted on its website the agency’s Draft Strategic Plan for FY 2014-2018.
Watch out for standardized labor categories
An initiative to watch in 2014 is the standardization of professional labor categories in the General Services Administration's Multiple Award Schedules program.
Professional services, including those related to IT, account for more than 50 percent -- $25 billion to $30 billion -- of the purchases by customer agencies through the MAS program. It is a robust, competitive marketplace that works for customers and contractors precisely because it allows commercial firms to offer, price and administer their professional services consistent with their standard commercial practices.
