Federal Government IT failures are all too common. Even so called “successes”
come with price tags that are too big, timetables that are too long, and
architectures that are inflexible. At the root of the problem is a traditional
reliance on “waterfall” development and force-fitting commercial off-the-shelf
(COTS) applications in an attempt to make them fit government needs. Most
of the acquisition and contract writing systems in use throughout the Federal
government today were developed with one of these approaches. Widespread
user frustration with those systems highlights how neither approach serves the
government’s needs well.
New technology exists that allows government agencies to get tailor-made
acquisition and contracting writing systems that avoid the limitations of the
past. These solutions are also future-proof and affordable. This paper provides
Federal acquisition teams with an education on the new technology, as well as
guidance to help them update their evaluation and selection processes to include
solutions using this technology.
