According to OFPP, the dialogue is part an ongoing effort to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the federal acquisition system by identifying impactful steps that can be taken by agencies to improve the way they do business with the best companies and enter into contracts that allow these companies to provide their best solutions for the taxpayer.
The Council is specifically encouraging dialogue in the areas of reporting and compliance requirements, procurement practices, and participation by small and minority businesses, new entrants, and non-traditional government contractors.
