@ Sandy – I need to post comments on that particular discussion you mention, as creating yet another process for acquisition is not the answer. If best practices were followed, there would be no need, as FAR 8 buys from GSA Schedules can be streamlined and efficient if done the correct way.

The tool (point 25) is not supposed to be a be fad, but an important step in improving procurement and communications early in the program. It is these early missteps that lead to poor outcomes, along with weak execution, oversight, and governance.
