Pentagon to Change Contracting Private Sector Services Rules

National Defense Magazine reports that “the Defense Department is about to introduce a new policy that would bring greater scrutiny to contractor-provided services.”  

“With the Pentagon now spending more than $150 billion a year on private-sector services, there is growing pressure to professionalize the process of hiring contractors and negotiating deals, said Claire Grady, director of defense procurement and acquisition policy.”  

“Grady is a former deputy assistant commandant for acquisition and director of acquisition services for the U.S. Coast Guard, and has taken on a major role at the Pentagon at a time when the department is pushing wide-ranging procurement reforms and coming under growing criticism from industry groups for its business-unfriendly policies.”
