Priority recommendations to OPM; White House contracting goals; CMMC questions remain for DIB

On today’s episode of The Daily Scoop Podcast, more issues were found in the rollout of the Department of Veterans Affairs electronic health records system.

The White House is pushing agencies on its small business contracting goals as quarter four begins for FY2022. Alan Thomas, chief operating officer at IntelliBridge and former commissioner of the Federal Acquisition Service at the General Services Administration, discusses the impact these goals have on the federal contracting base. 

The Department of Defense is committed to its Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program, but the defense industrial base still has questions about how that will work in practice. David Berteau, president and CEO of the Professional Services Council, explains what some of those questions are.

The Office of Personnel Management is undertaking a new data strategy and making fixes in its technology infrastructure. Michelle Sager, managing director for strategic issues at the Government Accountability Office, talks about the priority open recommendations GAO made to OPM.
