Best Practices for DoD Competitive Acquisitions

Bill Kobren
The Office of the Principal Director, Defense Pricing and Contracting (DPC) has issued a new resource of potential interest to members of the defense acquisition workforce entitled “Best Practices/Lessons Learned for Competitive Acquisitions”.

According to DPC, “…the purpose of this document is to collect and share best practices applicable to large dollar, competitive acquisitions with Contracting Officers (COs) and acquisition teams across the Department of Defense (DoD) workforce. The information in this document is largely generated through the Office of Secretary of Defense’s Peer Review Program. The Peer Review Program embodies a world-class practice where senior leaders review and advise on the most important enterprise investment decisions. Such reviews of major procurements throughout the negotiation process ensure the sharing of lessons learned and best practices, consistency of implementing policies and regulations, and improvement of the quality of Departmental contracting processes.” Additional details on the Competitive Peer Review program can be found on the DPC website.
