A new memo from OFPP details changes to how agencies should submit information on contracting. A working group suggests three changes to what departments did previously. Agencies must submit their data by Jan. 5.

Auditors say agencies spent $136 billion on cost type contracts in 2008, up $16 billion since 2003. OMB wants to cut the use of these contracts by 10 percent in 2010.
President Obama releases set of initiatives that includes a government-wide job fair and a new interagency task force to promote best practices. At the same time, GSA and the Access Board are updating the Section 508 requirements for technology.
Reporting has dramatically increased, but has the relationship between contractors and contract managers been damaged?
Because of the retirement of baby-boomers, the federal government faces the imminent departure of large numbers of senior staffers over the next 10-15 years. A Senate subcommittee is focusing on how that will influence hiring the next generation of federal contract and acquisition workers.
New memo from OMB is third in two weeks trying to change the acquisition environment. OFPP eventually wants agencies to submit data about non-IT projects in an Exhibit 53 style format. Agencies have six weeks to submit information on their top 10 construction projects.
OFPP issues two contracting memos today. One gives agencies help to evaluate how competitive their contracting process is. The second one asks agencies to develop a workforce plan to increase the number of acquisition workers by 5 percent by 2014.
A recent report says there are a lot of questions surrounding the federal contracting space, and part of that is due to a lack of data.
