Casey Coleman: IT Procurement Process Needs Industry-Gov’t Dialogue

coleman_casey_smallCasey Coleman, vice president of Unisys‘ federal civilian business group, government and industry need more communication in order to help fulfill information technology procurements.

Coleman wrote in a blog post published Tuesday that some companies may not understand the government’s desired outcome when dialogue is absent.

“Without effective dialogue between government and industry, contractors cannot understand the outcomes the government is seeking, and they are hindered from effectively meeting the government's needs,” Coleman wrote.

“As a result, the federal team will be less aware of innovative new capabilities,” she said.

Coleman said the General Services Administration‘s Alliant 2 vehicle is an example of a successful procurement program based on her conversations.
