Reassessing Procurement

Recent changes to Standard Procurement System management:

* The SPS Joint Requirements Board was given the responsibility to work with users to define and reach agreement on functionality requirements.

* SPS program officials restructured and strengthened SPS staff by hiring individuals with expertise in contracting, software engineering, configuration management and testing.

* SPS program officials renegotiated the SPS contract with American Management Systems Inc., making the requirements process clearer.

* The officials also established new processes to develop the testing plans, maintain control over all software testing performed and ensure that specified requirements are being tested.
