Timely, free flow of information between buyer and seller has historically been a problem in government procurement actions. Since there is a requirement to make information available to an individual, a group within a single location or a group across the nation, in a timely manner, it is very important that the government consider taking advantage of the latest communication technology. Present day communication technology will allow the user to gain better and faster access to expertise and work closely with distant associates while spending less time and money on travel. In a recent Army Competition Conference 26 June 1986, the need for incorporating present day communication technology into the procurement process was highlighted. One of the panel members Mr. Vorhies of E-Systems, Inc. presented a paper suggesting the use of electronic bulletin boards EBB, electronic mail service EMS and on-line terminal conferencing as a means of upgrading the flow of information between the Government and the contractors.
