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.
