Session B4 - Basic Agreements and Supplier Relationships: More Relevant than Ever in Pressured Times
Hear about the obstacles to supplier relationship management (SRM) and how the basic agreement can breach those obstacles and help achieve better buying power for the federal government. Better understand government procurement policies and how to effectively achieve SRM through discussions on competition requirements, small business utilization goals, short contract periods, and scope limitations. Also, better understand how to remedy personnel and organizational obstacles that could hinder implementation of SRM into federal acquisitions, including discussions on SRM familiarity of federal employees and concerns regarding a “military-industrial complex” mentality.
