Federal Allies News December 2013

2013 In Sum

Federal Allies celebrates a 5th year as a platform on which to build success stories of both entrepreneurs and federal government contracting staffers.  During 2013 we obtained even more resources and participants that can help the collective federal contracting community.  We look forward to working with you in 2014!

Federal Allies Institute is dedicated to federal acquisition best practices and has received many comments on the Affordable Care Act website HealthCare.gov.  One from California went on to say, what cost well over $600 million inside the beltway, would have cost $5 million to build correctly in Menlo Park as a private sector initiative.

The lack of project leadership, real-time oversight, delay of rulemaking, and other issues, enabled a man-made perfect storm for waste about a law that is projected a decade hence to result in an uninsured American population of 10%.  Back to where we started?

Federal Allies Institute’s Board of Directors was an early supporter of National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, also known as Bowles Simpson and Simpson Bowles.  Yes our business members would like to sell to the federal government, but not if the American taxpayer cannot afford it or does not need it.

On behalf of our incoming board, we welcome all new members that have signed up and joined Federal Allies Institute over the past 30 days.  And we appreciate members who took the time to renew their annual memberships during the busy holiday season.

We appreciate all who voted in our two board elections held during 2013.

We have many new and exciting programs planned for 2014!  And as always, our door is open to you.

David T. Boddie, Executive Director
