Federal agency decision makers are tasked to acquire systems and services at the best price. But this approach fails to recognize the greater value of these potential acquisitions. As a result, innovation gets lost in a “price shootout” scenario, according to Stan Soloway, president/CEO of the Professional Services Council.

In this “Five Minutes With …” installment, Soloway explains how the agencies can increase efficiencies by focusing more on what technology can do as opposed to simply what’s cheapest. Listen to our conversation on effective government spending.
