This online dialogue is made up of three campaigns. Each campaign is focused on different aspects of the Federal acquisition process for which we welcome your insight, ideas, and feedback. Some areas may overlap and to help organize ideas, we have created “tags” you can use to capture the primary area of impact you are proposing. Tags are a way to identify your idea using key words that best describe the intent. Tags and associated conversations are displayed in the navigation area under “what we’re discussing”. If you are new to federal procurement or have had limited experience in the federal marketplace, we encourage you to start with Campaign 3.

Ten tags are included in the drop down menu:

Better communication Innovation and pilots
Better incentives IT purchasing
Buying commercial items Small business help
Buying processes or rules Websites and systems
Duplicate or too frequent reporting Other
