    Date:  September 12, 2023
     
     
    Time: 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EDT
     
    CLPs: 1.5
     
     
    Description: 
    The Panel discussion will focus on the Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution (PPBE) process with emphasis on how to allocate resources within the Department of Defense. Within the acquisition community, it is important for program managers and their staffs to be aware of the nature and timing of each of the events in the PPBE process, since they may be required to provide key information that could be important to program funding and success and must demonstrate their ability to plan and execute funding consistent with DOD policy.  Additionally, since the acquisition process is “event driven”, and the PPBE process is “calendar driven”, this difference can result in timing issues for the acquisition community.
     
    This webinar will provide participants with a better understanding of what the PPBE process is, how it works, and how government agencies plan and execute programs working through the PPBE process.  Additionally, it will provide insights and perspectives on how the PPBE process affects industry’s planning and resourcing to support program and contracts.
