A House caucus advocating for government increasing its use of contractors will launch this week, Federal Times reports.

The “Yellow Pages” caucus has drawn interest from 20 possible members and is holding a kickoff event Tuesday at Capital Triangle.

The Business Coalition for Fair Competition said in a Facebook announcement that if private businesses listed in the phone directory perform the same service that the government performs, then the service should be subject to open competition.

Using private sector businesses to complete this work would allow federal workers to instead focus on government-related work, BCFC President John Palatiello said to Federal Times.
