Acquisition mythbusting gets the spotlight

Work for an agency that did great things with acquisition? You might want to consider it for the Myth-busting Award.

The American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council and its federal government partners have introduced the 2013 "Myth-busting Award" for agencies and programs that made significant advances in acquisition processes by improving communications.

In previous years, the Office of Federal Procurement Policy issued memoranda on myth-busting with the aim to enhance communication between government and industry in the federal acquisition process. Agencies then created government-industry communication initiatives to improve acquisition outcomes.

The ACT-IAC Acquisition Management Shared Interest Group now wants to acknowledge government’s work related to this effort. Only government programs are eligible for the award, which will be presented at the May 29 ACT-IAC Myth-busting Forum.

For more information and to access the online Myth-busting Award nomination form, visit ACT-IAC's Myth-busting page.
