Overview

Acquisition Innovation:  adaptability, resiliency, speed and repeatability

 

description

The COVID-19 pandemic has altered how the business of government gets done.  Within acquisition, new opportunities have presented themselves to innovate and collaborate more effectively with industry.  In this changing landscape with a new Administration, an increased focus on supporting the federal workforce, continuing telework, and a new urgency to address supply chain and cybersecurity challenges, it's a different world and we may never go back to the old "normal".  Come join us at the Acquisition Innovation Forum and find out firsthand how government and industry are working together to build adaptability, resiliency, speed and repeatability into the acquisition process and changing the world along the way.

objectives

  • Hear proposed strategic acquisition plans for 2021
