Federal acquisition community loses one of its own

Sad news in the federal acquisition community: Scott Orbach, co-founder and president of EZGSA, suddenly died while on vacation in Hawaii.

Orbach had led EZGSA since 1990 and helped it become one of the leading companies that helps firms get their General Services Administration’s schedule contracts. EZGSA also assists companies in generating leads and sales, and helping clients win federal contracts.

According to the Honolulu Advertiser, Orbach, 53, was found unconscious in Waimea Bay and the medical examiner determined the cause of death to be drowning.

Orbach’s family held a celebration of Scott’s life on Jan. 31 at his favorite restaurant, Sushiko. The family asked that donations be sent to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (D-Vt.) presidential campaign or the Parkinson’s Foundation instead of sending flowers.

Orbach was a guest on Federal News Radio many times over the years, wrote a blog on his company’s website about issues impacting the federal contracting community and was a well-respected and thoughtful person on all things federal contracting. He will be missed.
