Continuing Congressional Focus on Acquisition?

 

Will the debate over the Nation's economy in this election year reduce the focus of our Congressional friends on our acquisition community?  For the past few years their gaze has been pretty unrelenting and it's arguable whether or not intense Congressional scrutiny is either a good or bad thing.  Personally, I think their focus will be on election year bigger ticket red meat subjects like "saving" the economy and not necessarily how the Feds spend their appropriated funding,  This being said, I am pretty confident that investigative arms like Agency OIG's will continue their efforts on trying to "fix" the process forensically.  So, what do you think?  I am not quite ready to draw a deep breathe and relax.

When Tom Davis left Congress there was a void in congress as there are too few members in congress with any acquisition acument -- Moran and Connolly have stepped up and understand acquisition better than most in congress.
