Featured Speaker: Eric Cho, Project Lead, Procurement Innovation Lab (PIL), U.S. Department of Homeland Security
The ACT-IAC Networks and Telecommunications (N&T) Community of Interest invites you to an informative program featuring Eric Cho, Acquisition Innovation Advocate (AIA), Procurement Innovation Lab, Department of Homeland Security.
As follow up to Cho’s insights shared at ACT-IAC’s EIS Network Modernization Forum (on June 19), he will expand 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 will close with a brief "N&T COI Business Meeting” with updates and upcoming COI plans and programs.
