What Non acquisition Managers Need to Know About Procurement

The role of the nonacquisition manager is critical to proper stewardship and oversight and to achievement of strategic outcomes. I learned this during the scrub-down of many misbegotten federal acquisitions while in government and as a government contractor. With this in mind, I have culled, from the recently updated How to Write a Statement of Work (SOW) and its companion reference tool, Federal Statements of Work: A Practical Guide, those best practice contributions that procurement counterparts expect from the designated official or technical representative.
