Acquisition took center stage during day two of the American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council’s 2018 Executive Leadership Conference in Philadelphia on Tuesday. From the IRS’ interest in robotics to the General Services Administration’s plans to make the lives of contracting officers easier, and the ongoing debate around other transaction authorities, agencies and industry continue to figure out ways to simplify the federal acquisition system.
