US Digital Service Director praises agency micropurchase abilities for Technology Modernization

“Traci Walker, the U.S. Digital Service’s director of digital service procurement, thinks the recent boost in the micropurchase threshold is a bigger deal than most agencies appreciate. “The amount of tech that can now be purchased for $10,000 has expanded a lot,” Walker said at a Sept. 27 FCW Event. But tapping industry knowledge may be just as vital.”

“The reason that this is cool is … that industry would love to give us a lot of this information or help us with our problems, but we always say, ‘We’re government, we can’t take things for free,'” Walker said. With a micropurchase, she suggested, agencies can instead say, “OK, we want to pay for good advice, but we also don’t want to go through this huge acquisition process.” Read the full posting here.
