The Office of Federal Procurement Policy wants to move forward with strategic sourcing efforts, and has delivered a set of proposals for how and where to expand the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative, Federal News Radio reported. These efforts include technology hardware and software, laboratory supplies, janitorial and sanitation, mobile and wireless products and services, and others, Federal News Radio quoted Joe Jordan as saying.
At a panel discussion on strategic sourcing at an event sponsored by the Coalition for Government Procurement on Wednesday, Jordan was reported by Federal News Radio to have said that his office is “putting all that commodity under management with an executive agent that has a deep content knowledge and all of the large buyers at the table, along with the Small Business Administration, to figure out what the right solution is. In some cases, it will mean reduced contract duplication, better leveraging our spend and driving volume-based discounts. In other cases, it's more terms and conditions, and taking administrative costs out of the approach,” he was quoted as saying.
