OMB looking for better vendor engagement on IT projects

The Office of Management and Budget is looking to expand on a memo it released three months ago that called for more category management practices, digital acquisition strategies and more effective vendor engagement on large-scale IT projects, FCW is reporting.

Anne Rung, administrator of OMB’s Office of Federal Procurement Policy, said in a recent speech that OMB would hire a category manager to work to improve how the government spends $25 billion a year on IT commodities.

OMB will also hire an IT vendor manager who will work at GSA to provide full-time focus on improving relationships with key vendors, FCW reported. OFPP is also expected to release guidance in the coming weeks suggesting that agencies seek feedback from vendors on how well IT acquisitions are being run.
