Abstract:

The Standard procurement System SPS uses information technologies IT to support defense procurement through workflow technology. Although SPS has overcome many of the severe pathologies associated with the Defense procurement process, it is only a humble beginning for the application of state of the art in electronic contracting. This article outlines key aspects and limitations of next generation information technology including waivers of cost and pricing data and other price analysis methods. SPS officials are challenged to investigate and incorporate these powerful technologies into future electronic contracting systems to improve procurement process performance.
