      Industry reacts to RFP-IT

      The effort to Reform Federal Procurement of Information Technology (RFP-IT) picked up a lot of steam after the troubled rollout of HealthCare.gov.

      In January, a pair of House Democrats -- Rep. Anna Eshoo (Calif.) and Rep. Gerry Connolly (Va.) -- released a draft of that bill. They consulted with public- and private-sector experts for six months, then unveiled version 2.0 before the August recess.

      Trey Hodgkins, senior vice president for the public sector at the Information Technology Industry Council, reacts to the latest version of RFP-IT.
