Full and open competition

from Cheryl Campbell - Senior Vice President CGI Federal, Inc – Prepared Testimony for the Healthcare.gov Hearing on Rap Genius

Meaning

Careful here with the words “Full and Open” — in procurement speak, full and open doesn’t always mean “full and open” it just means “full and open to the people who were qualified to bid on it”

It’s not like they had to compete against Joe Shmoe on the street. The solicitation could have been wired in the first place.
