DAU hosts the virtual Contract Closeout Limited Series once a month. These live virtual sessions are intended to give anyone in the acquisition community with contract closeout responsibility a place to listen to topical presentations, ask questions and share ideas. This platform connects people within this community to ideas, resources, tools and other valuable information. It is a place where contracting and OCS professionals can connect with each other, ask questions, and leverage collective knowledge. Guest speakers will present different topics each month for six months starting July of 2023. You can find the link on the DAU Events page listed above.
