Paul Murphy, Senior Data Analyst, Bloomberg Government

The multiple-award-contract (MAC) vehicle has been a favorite for many years because it offers agencies a group of pre-approved vendors competing for task orders and can speed up acquisition.

Paul Murphy is a senior data analyst at Bloomberg Government. He joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin with more on this new trend.
