A Look at the Better Contracting Initiative to Improve How Government Buys Tech

GSA leader Laura Staunton discusses next steps for the initiative and its goal to ultimately improve acquisition.

The White House’s Better Contracting Initiative aims to ensure the federal government is getting the best prices on services through acquisition.

The government spent more than $77 billion dollars on federal IT contracting last year, so saving money for government and ultimately taxpayers is among one of the initiative’s top priorities.

Laura Stanton, assistant commissioner for the Office of Information Technology Category at the General Service Administration’s Federal Acquisition Service, discusses the next phase of the initiative and how it will impact the IT contracting landscape in the long run.
