    Bipartisan bill strives for ‘more nimble and meaningful’ federal contracting – By Edward Graham (Nextgov) / Jan 22, 2024

    Legislation from Sens. Gary Peters, D-Mich., and Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, would “streamline procedures” for both solicitation and awards by slimming down the procurement process.

    A new bipartisan proposal seeks to simplify the federal contracting process — and potentially allow for more small businesses to work with the government — by reducing burdensome requirements and creating “a more nimble and meaningful bidding process and evaluation of proposals.”

    The Conforming Procedures for Federal Task and Delivery Order Contracts Act was introduced by Sens. Gary Peters, D-Mich., and Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, on Jan. 19.

    The bill seeks “to streamline procedures for solicitation and the awarding of task and delivery order contracts for agencies” by shrinking “the procurement process for contractors bidding on work as well as for the government, ensuring necessary due diligence is done while allowing awards to be made faster and to a wider array of contractors, including small businesses.”
