Event Details


Federal acquisition practices continue to evolve, and agencies that are taking advantage of these new approaches are seeing results. These include accelerated time-to-award, reduced delivery times, improved customer satisfaction, increased cost savings, and reduced barriers to entry. During this 2-hour collaborative session, we will consider the 'Periodic Table of Acquisition Innovations'. This will be a broad overview of the innovative acquisition practices that make a difference and allow agencies to meet mission critical needs faster, cheaper and more efficiently. We will hear from both agencies and small businesses on their experiences using these same practices. Finally, we will have an opportunity to ask questions and engage in a dialogue with the speakers.
