Advancing Procurement at the Pace of Technological Change

Some federal IT leaders cite the Federal Acquisition Regulations as the biggest obstacle to getting innovative technology deployed at their agencies. That concept was just one covered at the "Advancing Procurement at the Pace of Technological Change: Why Government Will (or Won't) Fix Procurement" panel at NextGov Prime 2014 Monday. Federal News Radio's Francis Rose moderated the discussion with Frank McNally, content developer at ASI Government; Joe Jordan, president of public sector at FedBid and former administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy; Kaitlin Devine, innovation specialist at the General Services Administration; and Shawn Kingsberry, chief information officer at the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board. To start the panel off, Joe Jordan tells Francis whether that perception of FAR as obstacle is fair.
