Industry wants unified set of security standards

The Coalition for Government Procurement is forming a Unified Standards Working Group that will examine federal security standards and make recommendations to the government.

According to a CGP announcement released today, the impetus for the group’s formation was members’ belief that the government should have a unified set of security standards that it expects contractors to comply with.

The working group will develop recommendations on what a unified security standard should look like for the General Services Administration’s Office of Federal Procurement Policy and the Office of Management and Budget’s E-Government Office.

The new working group will hold its first meeting at 2 p.m. Wednesday Jan. 10, 2007, at FedSources’ office in McLean, Va.
