In today’s turbulent and frequently changing federal acquisition environment, your contracting organization is constantly being “bombarded” by budget cuts, limited/inexperienced resources, and prolonged lead times. Under this setting, you need to know that your contracting office is operating at peak proficiency. Bill Reed and his Addx Acquisition Services Team know/understand this environment well. Bill has been a warranted contracting professional for over 30 years and has successfully helped numerous federal agencies improve their contracting effectiveness and efficiency by conducting a top to bottom review of their contracting office and he can do the same for you. You may not have resources, the time and the staff experience level to tackle this process, so do what The Department of Energy Headquarters Procurement Services did in December of 2014; let the Addx team of acquisition professionals conduct an Independent Procurement Management Review (IPMR). An independent PMR goes beyond strict regulatory compliance. It compliments and integrates with your other oversight and central systems (i.e. Balance Scorecard). An independent PMR will identify system exposures, opportunities for improvement, and best contracting practices that will help establish your organization as a pacesetter. An independent PMR will help you establish the baseline needed to develop a highly trained workforce who is skilled in exercising good business judgment, being innovative and gaining efficiencies, all while being effective stewards of taxpayer dollars. The Addx PMR process can be customized to meet any particular Agency need.
