Tom Davis, Government Relations Director, Deloitte

Acquisition reform is one of the most popular subjects on Capitol Hill right now. The likely next chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), is leading a task force on defense acquisition reform. The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations just published a collection of essays from acquisition experts on the next steps for reform. Our special report, The Missing Pieces of Procurement Reform, focuses on finding some kind of legislation reform. Tom Davis, director of government relations for Deloitte and former Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, tells In Depth with Francis Rose what's changed since the Services Acquisition Reform Act panel presented its work to his committee eight years ago.

Buying things, so simple to individuals, is a highly legalized and regulated process in government. Federal News Radio's special report, Missing Pieces of Procurement Reform, will look back at the past 20 years of acquisition laws enacted to gauge their impact, and look ahead to short- and long-term changes that need to happen today to make a difference in 2016 and beyond.
