Lieberman, Collins have common sense, group says

Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) received the Common Sense in Government Procurement Award for their efforts to improve acquisition sensibly, the Coalition for Government Procurement announced today.

The award is given to leaders in the procurement community who have made outstanding “common sense” contributions to improving the federal acquisition system.

Lieberman and Collins are the chairman and ranking member of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

“We honor their dedication to improving the operation and management of the federal acquisition process to ensure that it delivers best value for the American people,” said Roger Waldron, president of the Coalition.

He described the two senators as “thoughtful, no nonsense leaders who focus on efficient and effective solutions.”

Bill Gormley, chairman of the Coalition, said Lieberman and Collins understand the importance of integrity, efficiency and trust in the management of the federal acquisition.

The Common Sense award is a part of the Coalition's Excellence in Partnership Awards. They were developed 12 years ago to promote industry and government partnership and to honor the individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the success of the procurement program system.
