GovExec Daily: How an RFI Can Further Biden Diversity Goals

Stan Soloway joins the podcast to discuss how a recent request for information is being used as a crowd-sourcing tool for policy solutions around equity goals.

Recently, the Office of Management and Budget issued a request for information seeking potential DEI solutions to improve a range of government activities, including service to public assistance beneficiaries and federal procurement. The RFI reflects a larger strategy of using the procurement process as a way to further DEI progress in the federal government.

Stan Soloway is president and CEO of Celero Strategies, LLC and a GovExec contributor. He formerly served as deputy undersecretary of Defense for acquisition reform and director of the Defense Reform Initiative during Bill Clinton’s administration. He has a post on our site right now headlined “Diversity RFI Opens the Door to Rethinking How Government Reaches Its Goals.” He joined the show to discuss his piece and the ways the administration can use procurement toward DEI goals.
