Industry leader Stan Soloway tackles the insourcing threat—and tells you what to expect. Don’t miss our next Speaker Series!
Local and national firms from large to small are facing a new threat: insourcing. Will the federal government, long considered a source of business for the region’s firms, become a competitor?
No one is more qualified to address this issue than Stan Z. Soloway, President and CEO of the Professional Services Council (PSC), the main national trade association of the government professional and technical services industry. PSC is widely known for its leadership on procurement, privatization, and outsourcing issues—and now insourcing! Make sure you get Stan’s take on this hot topic at:
"Insourcing: Current Policy, Future Trends, and How It Will Affect Procurements Going Forward”

Stan's presentation is vital for:
- Capture Managers. What federal opportunities might be impacted by insourcing? You must know how to revise your strategies to address possible changes.
- Proposal Managers. Will we see fewer procurements, more A-76 procurements, or just more cost competition? A good technical approach alone might not win in a battle between a contractor’s proposal and federal insourcing. How will best value decisions be made—and will the process be transparent? Learn how to lead your team to winning bids.
- Cost Managers/Analysts. When all proposals are more or less equal, cost is king. You must understand how insourcing impacts cost comparisons and PTW.
- Everyone! Ask your most urgent questions—that’s why we bring you outstanding speakers like Stan.
Make no mistake, the federal government is under extreme pressure to cut costs in contracting—but should your firm be the one that bleeds? Better join us for this event!
