  3. Fail Safe – Creating Cultures Where Innovation Can Flourish • Many innovative acquisition practices have been identified and well publicized across the Federal space (the WHAT). This session will focus more on the HOW of setting conditions to enable those innovative practices to be successful. • We will try to answer the following questions: • What do organizations need to do to create cultures that are open to new/different things? • How do organizations create culture that is supportive of innovative thinking and doing?

Kasule, Digital Service Acquisition Strategist, United States Digital Service • Michael McFarland, Director, Acquisition Business Systems, Division of Acquisition, Assistant Secretary for Financial Resources (ASFR), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services • Scott Palmer, Director of Procurement, United States Patent and Trademark Office • Trevor Wagner, Testing and Reengineering Lead, Procurement Innovation Lab (PIL), Department of Homeland Security

  5. Fail Safe – Creating Cultures Where Innovation Can Flourish Case Study • Agency X has a large application portfolio (100+ systems) with significant legacy technology and technical debt, in need of modernization, as well as a cloud platform to support the applications and enable modernization. • Agency X has two incumbent contractors supporting the technical environment, one large and one small business, but they do not think the current support model gives them enough flexibility, and they have struggled to bring in innovative solutions to transform and modernize. • As the contracts of the two incumbents are nearing the end, there are different opinions across senior leaders at Agency X about the best path forward to create a vendor support solution to facilitate the modernization effort.

  6. Fail Safe – Creating Cultures Where Innovation Can Flourish Case Study Challenge • Briefly outline your agency’s existing or traditional go-to practices for an acquisition like the case study • What new innovative practices might you try to use for this new acquisition? • If you could encourage your agency to adopt more innovative practices, HOW would you go about convincing your stakeholders/leadership (e.g. program, IT, acquisition) to make the change? • For 2019, what innovative practice can you commit to exploring?

  7. Fail Safe – Creating Cultures Where Innovation Can Flourish Questions to Think About • How can you ensure transparency and engagement with industry early in the procurement cycle or at each stage of the procurement cycle? • How can you encourage competition by providing interested vendors with a greater understanding of the goals and objectives for the procurement? • How can you shorten the time-to-award, thereby delivering capability to the customer faster? • How can you lower entry barriers for innovative, non-traditional contractors to compete? • What evaluation techniques can you focus on in order to obtain the most qualified contractors? • How can you minimize the burden on government in writing a lengthy RFQ and reviewing a lengthy written proposal response? • How can you incorporate automation into the acquisition/review process?
