The Professional Services Council and three other technology organizations have released a joint document that lists six guiding principles on how the federal government can improve its acquisitions of technology products and services from the private sector.

PSC drafted the white paper titled “Delivering Results: A Framework for Federal Government Technology Access & Acquisition” with the Northern Virginia Technology Council, Technology Councils of North America and the California Technology Council, PSC said Wednesday.

The document suggests ways on how the federal government can promote innovation and encourage all companies to compete for contracts, foster collaboration with industry, implement flexibility in federal contracting procedures, manage risks and support the federal acquisition workforce.

“That we have come together around this set of overarching principles sends a strong signal that the government is constrained by how they ask for technology solutions, not who they ask,” said Dave Wennergren, senior vice president of technology policy at PSC and vice president of enterprise technologies and services at CACI International.
