The most expansive explosion of innovative activity in federal acquisition in a quarter century is now underway. The surge is being driven, in part, by accelerating information technology innovation and disruptive business models in the consumer and business services sectors of the economy. Keeping up requires new approaches that seek to take full advantage of the new capabilities and opportunities while mitigating technical and business risks by making sound acquisition decisions that realize the intended behavior in the regulations. Initiatives currently underway include nearly all major buying organizations.
The theme of this year's Acquisition Excellence Conference was Acquisition Innovation Avalanche.
Acquisition innovation and technological innovation are two sides of a single coin – with each playing a role in the other. Diffusion of successful innovations in acquisition enable faster and better outcomes for missions across the government.
