Government Information technology Security: An Introduction

Procurement can be defined as all activities concerned with the acquisition of goods and services, including ordering, negotiations and delivery.


History of Information Technology Procurement in Government

Current Situation

The House passed the Accountability in Contracting Act on March 26, as a part of the Fiscal 2007 Emergency Appropriations Supplemental bill. If passed, it will cut back the government's usage of sole-source contracts. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), originally launched this as the Accountability in Contracting Act on 03/06/2007, and the house first passed it on 03/15/2007. But it lacked a Senate companion bill, so Waxman elected to work the measure thought the ought to push it through the supplemental spending bill. (It contains the several of the original provisions, but lacks other reforms outlined in the original HR 1362 bill.

Details on the accountability plan: If an agency spends over $1 billion on contracts it would need to find a way to minimize its sole-source contracts, and justify those that it feels should be given sole-source status.
