Market Connections, Inc. and Centurion Research Solutions will release the results of an in-depth study that investigates the impact of Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procurements on government agencies and contractors on October 24, 2013.
The event will feature a presentation of the study’s findings by Lisa Dezzutti, President and CEO of Market Connections, and Fritzi Serafin, Vice President of Research Solutions. The presentation will also include a panel discussion of government contracting professionals who include:
• Deb Alderson – President & CEO, Sotera Defense Solutions
• Michael Fischetti – Executive Director, National Contract Management Association (NCMA)
• George Obertubbesing – Vice President, Business Development, Harris IT Services
• Ray Whitehead – Vice President, Business Development and Strategic Planning, General Dynamics Information Technology
“The past year has been one of tremendous uncertainty within the federal government,” said Dezzutti. “With the total impact on procurement policies and agency budgets being unknown—further compounded by the government shutdown—many contractors believe that LPTA contracts are stifling innovation, driving down prices and at times being used for the wrong types of federal procurements.”
The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Gannett Conference Center in McLean, Va. To reserve tickets to the event, click here.
