Government agencies are continuously perfecting the buying/procurement process to create an easier, more cost-effective experience for their buyers. Current efforts to this end include the creation of a new, strategic approach to increase value and benefit to government buyers through Category Management. Businesses that sell goods and services to the government will be identified by their fit into one of these categories. Contracts awarded within these categories will leverage pricing to increase value to the government agencies while being more easily trackable to better future buying strategies.
