10 Ways Social Media Will Streamline Federal Acquisition

A couple months ago, I noticed a conversation on GovLoop regarding acquisition. Having spent the past ten years as a proposal writer that has responded to hundreds of Requests for Proposals on behalf of non-profit and educational institutions, I contributed six quick ideas to the discussion. Well, no good deed goes unpunished and those comments led to an invitation to serve on a panel titled, “Rockstars of Gov 2.0 Innovate Federal Acquisition,” that was held at the General Services Administration on July 1.

Mary Davie (Assistant Commissioner, Office of Assisted Acquisition Services, General Services Administration) and Esther Burgess (Senior Vice President and COO, Vistronix) served as moderators and fellow panelists included Noel Dickover (Department of Defense), Kim Patrick Kobza (Co-Founder and CEO, Neighborhood America), Jack Kelly (Senior Policy Analyst, Office of Federal Procurement Policy, Office of Management and Budget), and Raj Sharma (President and Co-chair, Board of Directors at FAIR Institute, President and CEO, Censeo Consulting Group).
