This week on Off the Shelf, Bill Gormley, President of The Gormley Group, and Tom Sisti, Executive Vice President and General Counsel at the Coalition for Government Procurement, provide a mid-year update on current programmatic, policy, and market trends in federal procurement.

Gormley and Sisti also provide their analysis and impression of GSA’s acquisition strategy for the new Services MAC and the implications for customer agencies, industry partners and GSA operations. Finally Gormley and Sisti discuss cybersecurity and the President Biden’s recent executive order, highlighting what it means for government and industry.
