SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Joan Freitag, senior vice president and principal of Hanson’s Department of Defense market, was appointed chair of the American Council of Engineering Companies’ (ACEC) Federal Agencies and Procurement Advocacy Committee for 2012-13. Her term began during ACEC’s 2012 Annual Convention and Legislative Summit, held April 15-18 in Washington, D.C.
ACEC’s Federal Agencies and Procurement Advocacy Committee promotes the interests of ACEC members who contract with the federal government, and its members work with Congress and federal agencies on legislative and business issues that affect the engineering industry. Freitag will focus on ACEC’s key legislative priorities, including promoting the use of qualification-based selection at all government levels, advocating the use of private-sector firms for government contracts, and encouraging open competition for architectural and engineering services.
A member of this committee since 2004, Freitag served as vice chair from 2009 to 2011. She also served on ACEC’s Public Relations Committee. She currently serves on ACEC-Illinois’ Government Affairs Committee as a liaison to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island District.
