“With the total impact on procurement policies and agency budgets being unknown, many contractors believe that LPTA contracts are stifling innovation, driving down prices and at times being used for the wrong types of federal procurements,” said Dezzutti.

Market Connections, Inc. and Centurion Research Solutions are hosting a government contracting industry event to release the results of an in-depth study that gauges the impact of Lowest Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procurements on government agencies and the contractors who serve them on October 24, 2013 at the Gannett Conference Center.

WHO: Market Connections, Inc. and Centurion Research Solutions

WHAT: Lisa Dezzutti, President & CEO of Market Connections, and Fritzi Serafin, Vice President of Research Services of Centurion Research Solutions, will present the study findings, followed by a panel discussion of government contracting professionals who include:

“The past year has been one of tremendous uncertainty within the federal government,” said Dezzutti. “With the total impact on procurement policies and agency budgets being unknown—further compounded by the government shutdown—many contractors believe that LPTA contracts are stifling innovation, driving down prices and at times being used for the wrong types of federal procurements.”
