On today’s episode of The Daily Scoop Podcast, Dan Chenok, executive director of the IBM Center for The Business of Government and former branch chief for information policy and technology at the Office of Management and Budget, discusses a new bill on Capitol Hill that would make it easier for agencies to buy commercial technology.
