Chris Hamm, director of the General Services Administration‘s Federal System Integration and Management Center, has said GSA is exploring new processes and technologies in an effort make government contracting cheaper and more efficient, Federal Times reported Friday.

Andy Medici writes that contractors could see potential opportunities as the agency works to utilize an “objective scorecard” for vendor self-assessment during the solicitation process.

Hamm added that FEDSIM has also been increasingly turning to video presentations rather than oral presentations to solicit contracts, according to the report.

Other tools and techniques in the pipeline include the Contract Awarded Labor Category tool for market research and price analysis and the expansion of industry outreach efforts to further build up dialogue and collaboration, the report said.
