Mark Naggar: HHS Buyers Club Continues Program Evaluation After 1st Contract

1 min read

HHS Health and Human ServicesMark Naggar, program manager of the Department of Health and Human Services‘ Buyers Club, say the initiative is moving forward with its first contract to further develop procurement agility functions, Fedscoop reported Wednesday.

Billy Mitchell writes that Naggar has noted future website changes, continued collaboration across the federal government and efforts to collect feedback on the revised acquisition diagram.

“We’re starting to do a lot more outreach. And I’m finishing the strategy and action plan, hopefully this week, that will be put on the [Buyers Club] landing page,” Naggar told the publication.

The agency has awarded a Web content management contract for HHS’ assistant secretary for planning and evaluation to Akira Technologies.

Naggar said other agencies see the risk management potential in the “two-step, down-select” procurement method of Buyers Club.

“There’s a lot to be said about making incremental investments before you devote and obligate a lot more of the taxpayers’ money into things.”

Naggar noted that he plans to utilize this initial contract as a use-case to evaluate the program’s long-term effectivity and continue Buyers Club outreach, education and end-user engagement work across government.
