This week on “Off the Shelf”, Ray Bjorklund, president of BirchGrove Consulting, tackles the management challenges in bridging the “divide” between government program managers and contracting officers.
Working together, these two groups are integral to achieving sound procurement outcomes that meet agency mission needs. Yet, too often these two groups or “tribes” have little understanding of the respective structural, regulatory, and operational constraints/frameworks that each must navigate.
Bjorklund shares his insights and recommendations on bridging the acquisition management gap. He also shares his insights regarding the keys to understanding the presidential transition process and its impact on the budget.
