Government Officials Optimistic About OMB Acquisition Reforms

Friday, April 21, 2017

Federal officials are optimistic that the recent Office of Management and Budget agency reform plan will have a positive impact on government acquisitions.

“There have to be new and better ways to buy IT and we need to modernize these systems, because there are obviously operational problems and security problems,” said Lesley Field, deputy administrator for Federal procurement policy at OMB. “So, I think there is a focus on it, and I think the memo sort of makes it clear we still need to continue in this vein while continuing to meet these goals.”

Lesley Field made the comments during the Association for Federal Information Research Management’s speaker series on Thursday.
