If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
Lowest Price Technical Acceptable (LPTA) is an acquisition strategy that recently become controversial enough that acquisition regulations have been updated to somewhat limit its use.
Kevin and Paul provide an overview of the regulation updates and discuss how, like any acquisition strategy, LPTA can be a powerful tool if used appropriately and a disaster if misapplied.
