Tom Romeo, general manager for the U.S. Federal Services Segment of MAXIMUS, discusses government contracting trends, and how the acquisition process is changing.

Agencies are looking to simplify the acquisition process in several ways. From introducing new authorities to streamlining regulations, agility is the primary goal for contracting officers everywhere. One of the more recent ideas is changing from a ‘request for proposal’ to a ‘statement of objectives’ Tom Romeo, general manager for the U.S. Federal Services Segment of MAXIMUS, says that the shift to statements of objectives could be difficult for some.


“I think it is hard to make the shift from the traditional RFP. I really feel for contracting officers today, because the FAR, If you printed it out, it is [so] big, and they have to follow those rules. It’s hard to not do it the way you have always done it,” Romeo said. “Statement of objectives really goes to a different route. We see more OTA’s as well. So, those are really different approaches than the traditional RFP’s have been.”
