PSC Releases 2012 Priorities

Arlington, Va., April 16, 2012—The Professional Services Council released its top five policy priorities for the year today. Within each priority area there are a set of specific policy initiatives the association sees as being of critical importance.

“This is a challenging time for government and for the industry that provides such vital support to it,” said PSC President and CEO Stan Soloway. “Our priorities for 2012 are all geared toward enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of the federal acquisition process, driving innovation to enable sustained cost savings and continually higher performance, and appropriately balancing the risks assumed by the public and private sectors respectively.”

PSC’s top five policy priorities focus on:
  1. Balanced competition among industry and among the public, quasigovernmental and private sectors;
  2. Effective regulatory reform;
  3. Strategic, rather than process-oriented, approaches to federal contracting;
  4. Broadening the industrial base; and
  5. Liability issues.
