Our experienced acquisition and procurement professionals offer advisory and management support for acquisition planning, procurement operations, contract management, and procurement policy and compliance.
Acquisition and procurement personnel in all organizations are being asked to do more with less, while at the same time managing the challenges of complex and changing requirements. This requires heightened strategic acquisition planning, innovative procurement strategies, and professional contract administration.
Our acquisition professionals provide advisory and decision support to procurement and logistics personnel. Anser Advisory delivers effective, best-practice solutions for every phase of the acquisition life cycle including market research, requirements development, cost estimating, and contract administration.
“...deliverables have included highly complex, rewrites of the VA’s FAR supplement (VAAR) and an accompanying manual (VAAM) for each. Several of these deliverables have proceeded through the federal rule-making process to include the OMB’s public comment period with very few minor questions and comments which is quite an extraordinary display of a high quality product.”
