Industry group calls on White House, not Congress, to lead acquisition reform efforts

Council President Stan Soloway joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss how the study got started.

But it may not be the final word on the issue on the sticky issue of contractor compensation. the budget deal's proposed changes to taxpayer-funded contractor salaries are competing with another piece of bipartisan legislation currently before Congress. The annual Defense Authorization Act seeks to lower the compensation limit but by far less than the budget deal.
