GovCon Council meets with OMB

October 2023:
GovCon Council meets with Mathew Blum, Associate Administrator for Federal Procurement Policy, Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Mathew Blum meet with the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce’s GovCon Council and CEOs, of which our CEO Linda Houk is a member. OFPP was established by Congress in 1974 to provide overall direction for government-wide procurement policies, regulations and procedures and to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in acquisition processes.

Mr. Blum gave an update on recent policies and requested feedback on how those policies were affecting small business. In particular, our panel chose to focus on the recent change to how the Joint Ventures are being evaluated for federal procurements and how it affects the small business community. When we met, the OASIS and Polaris IDIQ solicitations had reopened their solicitation to accept modifications by Joint Venture offerors.
