Defense Procurement Continues Evolving

While President Obama decides on whether or not to veto the FY 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), it remains certain that more changes in defense procurement practices are on the way. The House and Senate Armed Services Committees are focused on improving the structure and process of the military acquisition systems by providing business reforms that reduce overhead and achieve needed efficiency.

The changes to procurement practices in the FY 16 NDAA continues the evolution in government procurement policies. Without question government procurement officials continue to be under pressure to award contracts to low-cost bidders showcasing abilities to deliver.  It’s no longer a huge advantage being an incumbent bidder with high performance ratings.

Such changes in procurement practices are likely to increase competition.  To continue your business’ success, you will need to adjust your strategies and seek every advantage possible to help you rise above your competitors.
