Dorothy Aronson, chief information officer of the National Science Foundation, said companies seeking to help government agencies during the coronavirus pandemic should keep track of their contacts within those agencies and monitor where their services are being fielded across the government, Federal Times reported Tuesday.
She said vendors can help by linking the agencies that are in need of the same product or service.
“It’s easier for us to establish interagency agreements than it is for us to establish a new contract,” Aronson said Tuesday during a webinar. “So if you’re aware of your contacts across the government, that’s very helpful."
She noted that contractors can also consider extending help to stakeholders that federal agencies serve.
