Federal Procurement Update - Bisnow Breakfast & Schmooze

Fed Tech Bisnow presents a look into federal procurement from the Administrator of Federal Procurement himself, the Honorable Dan Gordon. Hear the OMB perspective on:

  • Acquisition workforce and how improving customer sophistication will affect contracting
  • Insourcing and workforce rebalancing - to what extent will this affect the contracting community? Should small and middle market contractors be worried?
  • What is this administration doing to develop opportunities for small business? What do you see as the forecast for small businesses?
  • "Efficiency and Affordability" - how is this playing out in the budget? Is the acquisition budget shrinking by $100B, $40B, or other? How do you see ideas like contractor productivity incentives and competitive acquisition strategies playing out?
  • Discuss cost savings, blanket purchase agreements and point of sale discounts
  • Conclude with general observations about the state of procurement and how it will or will not change in the coming year

As we enter the 2011 fiscal year, the face of contracting and doing business with the federal government is expected to change in significant ways. Learn how to improve your business relationship with the US Government, identify key upcoming trends, and understand new dynamics.

Join us on December 10th right down the street from the White House for this exciting look into federal procurement.
