Anne Rung, administrator at the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, has unveiled a set of rating tools for agencies and vendors to evaluate their experience during the acquisition process, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.
Jason Miller writes Rung sent a memo to federal acquisition officials on how their agencies should use the Acquisition 360 rating system to gather feedback from government and industry stakeholders about buying practices.
“These tools are meant to help agencies identify strengths and weaknesses with industry partnerships so they can make internal improvements on the planning and making of contract awards,” she wrote in the memo obtained by Federal News Radio.
She required agencies to implement the feedback system to survey at least 5 percent of new contract awards for complex information technology products or services before the start of fiscal 2016.
The memo contains a template with a list of questions for vendors regarding the debriefing, requirements development, solicitation and award execution phases of a procurement program, according to the station.
Rung told the station that OFPP will use ratings data to identify acquisition trends or areas that agencies want to improve or share best practices on.
