Maximus“™ Tom Romeo: Outcomes-Based Contracting Model Could Help Advance Trump Admin's Accountability Agenda - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Tom Romeo, general manager of U.S. federal services business at Maximus, has said agencies should adopt an outcomes-based contracting model as the Trump administration calls for the federal government to improve the delivery of services to citizens amid scant resources.

Romeo, an inductee into Executive Mosaic“™s Wash100 for 2017, wrote in a Government Executive article published July 26 that such a model works to encourage “tight collaboration” between contractors and agencies by aligning contractors“™ compensation with program outcomes and goals.

“Outcomes-based contracting offers a risk-sharing mechanism that allows agencies to contract for measurable results while relieving them of the responsibility of paying for services that do not meet expectations,“ he noted.

“This accountability helps agencies validate that taxpayer-funded programs are achieving value for citizens.“

Agencies that intend to adopt the outcomes-based structure must determine and prioritize their desired outcomes in request for proposals as well as know their performance metrics that could be used as “benchmarks“ for contractors“™ compensation, Romeo said.

“The RFP should not be overly prescriptive so as to not limit the contractor“™s ability to innovate in achieving the desired outcomes,“ he added.
