Become part of the conversation to improve Federal Procurement


The Chief Acquisition Officers Council, Chief Information Officers Council and Office of Federal Procurement Policy have collaborated to create an “Open Dialogue” online forum to gather ideas and proposed improvements to the federal contracting process that can be accomplished through executive (regulatory, administrative, or management) action, as well as potential legislative proposals. The open dialogue is focused around three topics (campaigns):

  • Reporting and Compliance
  • Procurement Rules and Practices
  • Small Business Participation

Each campaign poses several specific questions. Not only can you comment on any or all of them, you can read comments posted by others and indicate your agreement/disagreement.

This is an opportunity for community partners and small businesses to put forward suggestions with regard to the federal procurement process.   Please visit to participate. You will need to register and download the system software, but once registration is complete, your e-mail will be discarded and all posts are anonymous. For more information on the process, see:
