DoD’s Procurement, Acquisition Policy Arm to Update Contract Type Guidelines

acquisition policyThe Defense Department‘s procurement and acquisition policy organization is looking to update its guidance on types of contracts in an effort to clarify requirements for industry partners, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.

Meredith Somers writes DPAP Director Claire Grady aims to publish two sets of guidelines that address contract types and source selection respectively before March’s end.

Grady told the Acquisition Excellence 2016 conference Tuesday that DPAP seeks to help clarify industry’s understanding of different contract types to help people become more comfortable in using them.

She added DPAP will host a pricing training symposium with DoD’s office of cost assessment and program evaluation this summer to explain the guidebook for participants.
