Stephanie Shutt, director of the General Services Administration‘s Multiple Award Schedule Program Management Office, will serve as keynote speaker at GovConWire’s 2020 BD Trends Forum on Thursday, Aug. 27th, 2020.
Shutt has supported GSA’s MAS program for over 15 years. In her role, she is responsible for overseeing the agency’s $30 billion MAS program offering almost every commercial product and service available to agencies government-wide.
As PMO Director, Shutt has ensured that GSA’s Schedule program continually addresses current market forces and provides the federal government with a streamlined, value-based contracting solution that continues to save time and money well into the future.
Shutt recently discussed her goals to consolidate GSA scheduling. She stated that the main goal of the project is to help the entire program become more consistent. After receiving feedback from industry, customer agencies and GSA’s workforce, she recognized that groups that ended up being siloed due to the amount of schedules.
“The other thing we found when we were talking to everyone was that not only was there a consistency issue, but they became a duplication issue because everyone was building on their own, not as an enterprise… we realized the only way we’re going to be able to do that is to go one to so that that guessing game was eliminated.”
During the event, Shutt will dive into current Business Development (BD) trends, tips for securing contracts and Fiscal Year 2021 federal budget projections. Do not miss out on this must see forum!
