The PRICE Act has goals to improve Department of Homeland Security procurement, which ultimately can lead to frictionless procurement by:
- Improving or encouraging better competition,
- Reducing time to award,
- Achieving cost savings,
- Achieving better mission outcomes, or
- Meeting the goals for contracts awarded to minor business concerns.
This council would share best practices, including "transformational commercial business practices," by meeting at least quarterly, developing and disseminating guidance.
The council—led by the federal procurement policy administrator—would include the DHS chief procurement officer and members from the General Services Administration and Departments of Defense, Treasury, Veterans Affairs, Health and Human Services, and the Small Business Administration.
