Federal Contracting

The federal government should not produce goods and services for itself or others that can be produced at a lower price, with higher quality, and a faster delivery schedule by private businesses. The government saves billions of tax payer dollars and sustains the nation's competitive edge in industries such as defense, information technology, and management when it partners with and invests in private sector companies.

However, a complicated and inflexible federal contracting process with costly administrative burdens deters many businesses from bidding on contracts. The U.S. Chamber works to streamline the acquisition process, ensure a fair and open procurement system, and encourage the government to rely more on the private sector for the goods and services it needs.
