The federal government spends hundreds of billions of dollars each year on outside contractors. Agencies buy everything from software and hardware to military equipment, construction materials, logistics support, and office supplies. Yet there remain challenges in terms of processes and procedures. There are complaints that small businesses have difficulty complying with procurement requirements and that a lot of the money goes to businesses in a relatively small number of states.

On April 4, join Governance Studies at Brookings for an expert panel discussion on how to improve government procurement processes, especially for small businesses, moderated by Senior Fellow Darrell West.
