If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
It may be surprising to learn that the federal government sometimes duplicates effort and misses out on economies of scale when buying. (that’s a joke…)
Kevin and Paul explain the Economy Act, which allows federal agencies to order goods and services from other federal agencies in order to reduce overlapping activities and leverage economy of scale. Utilizing the Economy Act may be the path of least resistance for an acquisition, easing the process for both government and industry.
