Event Date: 02/20/2013
Event Time: 6:45 am to 9:40 am
Event Organizer: Bethesda Chapter
Description: Government-wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) are becoming increasingly vital to agencies by enabling them to leverage the government¿s buying power, achieve multi-agency objectives, and acquire acquisition and contract management functions at competitive rates. As the number of companies seeking schedule contracts has roughly doubled over the last several years, with over 80 percent being small businesses, knowing how to effectively leverage GWACs is critical for companies to meet agency objectives and grow their business. These contracts are rapidly evolving and new vehicles are on the horizon, from NITAAC¿s CIO-SP3 and ECS III to GSA¿s OASIS vehicle for integrated services to the next-generation NASA SEWP V. Since many vehicles have limited scope and life cycles, a company¿s success will depend on its ability to use the right one to support their customers¿ needs. Join AFCEA Bethesda at the GWAC Small Business Summit on February 20, 2013 at The Hamilton Live ¿ one of Washington D.C.¿s newest and most unique venues ¿ to discuss: ¿Challenges and best practices on how small businesses market and manage current GSA vehicles, such as 8(a), STARS II, Alliant Small Business and VETS ¿Emerging vehicle opportunities including NITAAC¿s CIO-SP3/ECSIII and NASA SEWP V ¿Teaming opportunities with large businesses ¿A procurement outlook on contract vehicles in 2013 ¿How the upcoming OASIS bid will affect current GSA GWACs ¿The impact of NASA SEWP V on the IT acquisition environment
