Stan Soloway, President and CEO of Celero Strategies, discusses the issues involved in bringing commercial tech to government, and why it's not strictly a procurement problem.

As the U.S. military stands up the new Space Command, commercial technology will play a huge role in getting their systems off the ground. Implementing these technologies, however, might be very difficult. Stan Soloway, President and CEO of Celero Strategies says that the issues cover a wide range of federal subjects.


“I don’t know if this is a strictly a procurement issue. We look at it in a procurement lens because that’s where it all plays out. The procurement community is simply executing on what someone else is directing,” Soloway said. “I think it requires multiple communities to come together and decide what this policy is. The procurement community is being asked to execute on what the customer is asking for. There are conflicts between the procurement folks and the customer folks. They don’t communicate and collaborate where they should. That’s where it starts. Congress has made it very clear that the government should take more advantage of commercial, recognizing in this environment you fall further behind faster.”
