Federal acquisition procurement rules continue to evolve to streamline and modernize the efficient acquisition of products and services. Join this session to hear our expert panelists discuss several changes that have occurred within the acquisition community over the past year including: executive orders, to the role of Robotic Process Automation (RPA technology) in contracting; the role of the large Best in Class (BIC) Government Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) including complex scoring mechanisms and teaming constructs; and the use of Requests for Information (RFIs) in the down-select process.
Potential topics include:
- What the future looks like for the Acquisition community
- How will the executive orders impact the Acquisition community?
- How will the government embed cybersecurity into RFPs?
- FedRAMP modification
- Whether the use of RFIs in down selects has been effective
- Will protests continue to delay and monopolize government contracting officials’ time?
- Will CPARS still continue to carry as much weight as they have in the past as an effective measure of reviewing past performance?
