Join us for a day of presentations and panels offering industry an opportunity to provide its perspective on key acquisition issues that delay or slow the acquisition processes itself. This provides an important opportunity for enhanced communications between the customer community and its suppliers that would potentially enhance DoD’s efforts to match the modernization agility of pacing threats.
