Federal Acquisition Shops Shouldn’t Wait for Direction


Federal Acquisition Shops Shouldn’t Wait for Direction


In this article hosted on FCW, Censeo Consulting Group Principal Aram Mazmanian offers his thoughts on the major challenges facing federal acquisition organizations in the coming years. In the wake of OMB M-17-22, offices managing acquisition need to be prepared to take on this extra burden and to improve their own performance. In response, acquisition offices should consider the following questions when conducting their strategic planning:

  • How efficient are your acquisition practices and where are there improvement opportunities?
  • How well is your acquisition organization understood internally and externally?
  • How efficient is your acquisition workforce, especially when compared to peer organizations?

Discussion on these core questions and more can be found at the FCW link above.
