Abstract

ACT-IAC Networks and Telecommunications COI Meeting
August 27, 2018
10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Speaker: Eric Cho, Project Lead, Procurement Innovation Lab (PIL), U.S. Department of Homeland Security

As follow up to Eric Cho’s insights shared at ACT-IAC’s EIS Network Modernization Forum (on June 19), Eric expanded on the recently released DHS PIL Boot Camp Workbook, which includes nine commonly-used evaluation techniques that can help streamline the EIS fair opportunity task order process.  Government-wide AIAs and OFPP have been briefed on this.  Other agencies can work with their AIAs to explore adopting these techniques and offer similar training.

The meeting closed with a brief "N&T COI Business Meeting” with updates and upcoming COI plans and programs.
