    Description:

    What will the future of Defense Acquisition look like? What policies, procedures, and priorities will characterize Defense Acquisition in the next five years? If you are a leader or emerging leader in the Defense Acquisition Workforce, you are probably interested in the answers to these questions. 

    The Acquisition Innovation Research Center (AIRC) and DAU are partnering to bring you a forum to gain insight into the future of Defense Acquisition.  AIRC principal investigators will present their research and you, the acquisition practitioners, can provide feedback on that research and share insights and lessons learned from your experiences as practitioners.

    Please join us for the second AIRC-DAU Quarterly Research Forum on 9 December 2022, 1230-1400ET.  The topics for this Quarterly Research Forum:
