Sample article from our Government & Public Policy

WASHINGTON , October 17, 2022 (press release) –

ISRI, the Voice of the Recycling Industry™, announces the selection of ISRI Chief Scientist/Director of Environmental Management David Wagger, Ph.D., has been selected to serve as a Representative member in the General Services Administration (GSA) Acquisition Policy Federal Advisory Committee (GAP FAC). Wagger was appointed by GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan to serve a two-year term. The GAP FAC is governed by the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act.

“I am very excited about David’s appointment and the opportunity it provides to add the voice of ISRI and the recycled materials industry to the discussions occurring in the federal government around sustainability,” says ISRI President Robin Wiener.

In his role, Wagger will provide the committee with perspectives and insights of the recycling industry. “There’s an adage that if you’re not at the table then you’re on the menu,” he says. “We want to have some say in the decisions made by GSA on acquisition policies such as recycled content.”

GSA’s Office of Government-wide Policy vetted over 100 candidates and built a diverse committee whose members include representatives from industry, including small businesses; federal, state, and local governments; industry associations; and academia. 

GAP FAC’s initial focus will be on driving regulatory, policy, and process changes required to embed climate and sustainability considerations in Federal acquisition. This includes examining and recommending steps GSA can take to support its workforce and industry partners in ensuring climate and sustainability issues are fully considered in the acquisition process.
