Federal Manager's Daily Report

Rules proposed jointly by GSA, DoD and NASA would encourage agencies to use mechanisms such as the Acquisition 360 Survey tool, to seek voluntary feedback from interested parties in the acquisition process.

A proposed rule published in the September 15 Federal Register is “intended to implement a standard process for obtaining voluntary feedback on various aspects of the acquisition process.” The feedback will be anonymous unless the participant self-identifies in the survey.

“While use of feedback is encouraged, DoD, GSA, and NASA appreciate that tailored solicitation of feedback may be more manageable and useful than blanket application and, for this reason, have crafted the proposed rule to provide agencies the flexibility to target specific types of requirements or aspects of the acquisition lifecycle where feedback may be most helpful to the agency and its efforts to drive continual process improvements,” it says.
