Innovation in the News: Accelerating IT Modernization through Acquisition Innovation
Lesley Field, Deputy Administrator in OMB’s Office of Federal Procurement Policy, and Tim Cooke, President and CEO of ASI Government, leader of this Institute for Innovation Initiative, took the stage at ACT-IAC’s Imagine Nation ELC 2018 last month. They shared the collaboration of leading acquisition and IT professionals with their mission partners to accelerate the PMA IT modernization goal.
Lesley stressed the need for acquisition professionals to work closely with their mission partners, take advantage of all of the tools available to them, and share their knowledge to improve acquisition results. Tim, who is leading the ACT-IAC Institute for Innovation’s “Accelerating IT Modernization Through Acquisition Innovation” initiative, described four workstreams focused on problems, processes, authorities, and successful buying organizations, that will provide federal agencies and the companies that support them with tools and best practices to aid their acquisition efforts. Those products are planned to be made widely available as they are completed in the coming months.
