Dan Tangherlini: Flat, Declining Budgets Highlight GSA’s Importance

Fiscal austerity and uncertain budgets give the General Services Administration and its contracting officers a more important role in government than in previous times, said Dan Tangherlini, GSA’s acting administrator.

According to Federal Times, Tangherlini said in video remarks to an agency expo in San Antonio that agencies must continue finding ways to reduce overhead costs and fund critical operations.

The Office of Federal Procurement Policy recently released a second memo in its “Mythbusters” campaign, detailing how contracting officers frequently disclose pricing information for goods and services to other agencies.

Many vendors believe that information cannot be shared across agencies, OFPP said.
