It may sound odd, but source selection officials have the authority to use more than one selection approach within a single procurement. And it looks like they're using that authority more often. You can find this authority in an often-overlooked section of the Federal Acquisition Regulation, FAR Part 15.101. Procurement attorney Joseph Petrillo of the law firm Petrillo and Powell joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin with more on how this works and what it means.

Alan Chvotkin, Executive VP and Counsel, Professional Services Council

For more than 20 years, a driving principle behind federal procurement is a simple one: To the extent possible, the government should buy regular commercial items under regular commercial terms and conditions. That idea is enshrined in law and regulation. So when it doesn't happen, companies protest. In a dispute between contractor CGI Federal and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the U.S. Court of Appeals reaffirmed that commercial principle. Alan Chvotkin, executive vice president and counsel at the Professional Services Council, joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin to explain why the ruling is so important.
