    Agile sourcing is being cited as the holy grail for many private sector procurements today. Its highly collaborative and iterative process frequently results in more successful and longer-lasting partnerships. It is however not right for all businesses or all programs. The GSA will share the outputs of its working group to date: what characteristics and behaviours are essential for agile sourcing to work; the principles of agile sourcing, as well as some examples of case studies demonstrating best practice.
