At PSX, the stuff that deals are made of

Government contracting for services, with a heavy emphasis on performance-based acquisition, drew the attention of feds at the Professional Services Expo this month in Washington.

Sessions during the two-day conference, presented by FOSE and PostNewsweek Tech Media and supported by the General Services Administration, included everything from panel discussions on contract incentives to training for managers and procurement officials.

Robert Burton, acting administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, delivers one of the conference's keynote addresses.

Cleve Pillifant of Management Concepts Inc., Ken Buck of GSA and Navy Capt. Chris Christopher of the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet project, hold a panel discussion on incentives.
On the exhibits floor, Howard Borgstrom of the Energy Department visits with Jennifer Watt, center, and Trish Selcher of Booz Allen Hamilton Inc.

Judy Davis, director of acquisition management for the Environmental Protection Agency, moderates a session on performance-based acquisition.
