The huge procurement blizzard coming could force changes in the way agencies buy. A movement exists to drive functional collaboration in acquisition.

  • Greg Giddens, former Chief Acquisition Officer at the Department of Veterans Affairs, said functional collaboration in acquisition involves bringing together key players, including mission owners, procurement, logistics, legal, budget and others, to work collectively.
