Partnership Symposium with Matchmaking

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

7:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Grand Hyatt

Independence Foyer and Ballroom

1000 H. Street, N.W.

Washington, DC. 20001


Our primary goal is to connect small business and primes to discuss partnering and teaming opportunities.  The focus organization for this event is the Department of Homeland Security with plenary topics focused on serving the DHS customer.

Speaker Plenary Session Topics:

"What Primes Want to Know and How to Give it to Them"

Ms. Judy Bradt, President, Summit Insight

8:00 a.m - 9:00 a.m.

Doing Business with DHS: Mr. Rafael Borras

Under Secretary for Management, Department of Homeland Security

9:20 a.m. - 10:20 a.m.

"DHS Market OVerview and Opportunities for 2013"

Mr. Kevin Brancato, Bloomberg Government

10:40 a.m. - 11:40 a.m.


Through a separate registration, a limited number of matchmaking appointments will be run concurrently with the plenary sessions to maximize the value for your time.  Appointments are pre-arranged by matching the desired core capabilities and past performance identified by the primes with that of the potential small business teammate.  Pairings are done by a volunteer committee of small and medium businesses (human beings, not software).  Companies without common ground will not be paired.

Government and Prime participants invited: Alion Science & Technology, AT&T Global Solutions, BAE Systems, Booz Allen Hamilton, CSC, Deloitte, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, General Dynamics Information Technology, Harris, HP, IBM, INDUS, L-3 Stratis, Lockheed Martin, NGA, Northrop Grumann, Raytheon, SAIC, Serco, Unisys, World Wide Technology and Xerox Federal Systems.

Matchmaking is sold out!
