Chief Acquisition Officers Council (CAOC)

The CAOC is the principal interagency forum for improving the Federal acquisition system and promoting the President’s specific acquisition-related initiatives and policies.  The CAOC was established pursuant to Section I6A of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) Act.


Acquisition Management: The CAOC supports programs and initiatives to identify and pursue opportunities for increasing efficiencies, reducing duplication and achieving savings through efforts such as spend management and strategic sourcing.

Transparency Improvement: This initiative is focused on increasing and improving acquisition data and information.  Funding will support technology-based solutions to increase transparency of pricing and contract information, including the cross-council effort to capture prices paid across government for commonly purchased goods and services.

Human Capital: The CAOC is working to further develop the capacity, capability and skill sets of the federal acquisition workforce.
