Federal buyers seem to hold their budgets as a state secret, and in these times of low-price and budget cut buying, it seems to make more sense to me to have federal buyers have an attitude of transparency, and work with industry on solutions based on what they can afford and what they can get in regards to capabilities for a given budget.
I think it would help shape realistic requirements, hopefully weed out bad actors, and improve outcomes in regards to cost-realism and effectiveness. Certainly would help with “should-cost” analyses.Thoughts?
