For more than 40 years, the Coalition for Government Procurement has provided members with unparalleled service in the realm of procurement policy. We track key policy issues and advise members on the latest developments in Federal contract regulation and legislation.
Voicing member interests to the Federal Government is central to the Coalition’s policy involvement. Government often turns to the Coalition for feedback and insight when launching new procurement programs and policies. The following are just some of the policy matters that the Coalition is currently engaged in:
- Supporting “common-sense” Acquisition policies to promote improvement in the efficiency and effectiveness of the Federal acquisition system
- Providing timely updates to members on the leadership and priorities of the new Administration and Congress
- Educating members about GSA’s Services Marketplace Initiative and providing GSA with industry input on the acquisition strategy for GSA’s BIC MAC and the IT GWACs
- Promoting dialogue with GSA on price negotiation practices, systems, and pricing policies, including the implementation of “Unpriced” Services for GSA Schedules
- Supporting the enhancement of healthcare for veterans through improved partnership and shared services between the VA, DHA, DLA, and industry
- Supporting a transparent VA transition to DLA’s DMLSS system in partnership with industry
- Monitoring, informing, and engaging members and stakeholders on supply chain sourcing, including any changes to Buy American or domestic sourcing policies and requirements
- Informing members of the latest cyber and supply chain security requirements (e.g., Section 889 and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) and sharing industry’s feedback with the Government
- Promoting the ongoing consolidation of GSA’s Schedules program
- Addressing implementation of Category Management Government-wide and industry input into the identification of Best-in-Class contracts
The list of issues that the Coalition advocates for on behalf of its members is continually evolving. To learn more about our policy involvement, contact Aubrey Woolley.
