“Communicate as fully with industry as the rules allow… The more we communicate our intent and priorities to industry, and the more we listen to industry concerns, the better.”
This 11th annual symposium serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas among scholars and practitioners of public sector acquisition. It features papers and presentations on recently completed and on-going projects conducted by researchers from universities and institutions from around the world, as well as remarks by a distinguished slate of guest speakers and panelists.
We seek a diverse audience of influential attendees from academia, government, and industry who are well placed to shape and promote future research in acquisition. If you know someone who might also like to attend please forward the invitation.
Register early as seats will go quickly – attendance is capped at 350.
We hope to see you in beautiful Monterey for what is sure to be an exciting and productive symposium.
