OMB Chief Issues Memorandum to Procurement Officials Regarding Inter-agency Aquisitions

Encouraging agencies to reduce waste by leveraging their "own buying power," the Administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, Dan Gordon, issued guidance designed to reduce duplication in acquisitions by increasing interagency contracting and information sharing.  This came out as a memorandum to Chief Acquisition Officer and Senior Procurement Executives on September 29, 2011.  As we discuss in the video series, this represents the type of communication that successful contractors need to stay tuned in to.  It's important that you understand what your customers are dealing with.  Directives, memos, executive orders, guidelines and other communique are constantly being issued to them.  It's their job to keep up on all of this.  It's your job to know what they are being tasked to do.  Taking the time to keep up on these issues makes you a valuable resource and commited partner to the government contracting officer.  The memo is available in the documents section of Interact.gsa.gov or you can link to it by going to:  http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/procurement/memo/development-review-and-approval-of-business-cases-for-certain-interagency-and-agency-specific-acquisitions-memo.pdf  Share your thoughts on what the memo means to you as an industry partner.
