The White House’s Office of Management and Budget recently issued a policy memorandum on how federal agencies are to undertake human resource planning for their contracting and acquisition workforce.  The plan cites a paper co-written by David M. Van Slyke of The Maxwell School of Syracuse University, Trevor Brown, associate director for Academic Affairs and Research at the Glenn School and Matthew Potoski of Iowa State University.  The paper Managing Public Service Contracts: Aligning Values, Institutions, and Markets was published in 2006. For memorandum.
