Nick Wakeman, editor of Washington Technology, discusses the impact that self-scoring contracts are having on companies, and why protesting them is difficult.

Self-scoring contracts are seeing more frequent use in government. The contracts have benefits for the federal acquisition managers as the companies are performing their own assessments. Nick Wakeman, editor of Washington Technology, says that the government is more likely to use these contracts as acquisition vehicles get bigger.

“We have these huge vehicles now, and the pressure is on industry to get on them. If you are not on them, you will be kind of shut out or you could be a subcontractor to somebody. It is really important. They will do whatever they can to get on these vehicles,” Wakeman said.
