Understanding the Opportunity of Simplified Acquisitions 

Continuing our series, "The Changing Face of Acquisition" with our third webinar, "Understanding the Opportunity of Simplified Acquisitions".
 
Discussion led by Guy Timberlake of the SCIIF, "Simplified Acquisitions are a secret weapon for federal agencies. It allows their buyers to make purchases with a reduced administrative lead time and level of effort so they can get essential goods and services to agency customers faster than other procurement methods. The rules for this type of purchase conveys a preference for agencies to engage with small business concerns as well as a reduced level of effort for vendors when responding to these requirements. In Fiscal Year 2018, 68 federal agencies, boards and commissions issued and administered contracts and orders valued at nearly $25B, continuing an upward trend in utilization and fiscal spending on buys made this way."

TechNet Cyber

The cyberspace battlefield has changed. No longer an arena where adversaries launch a single distributed denial of service attack, lob a virus or infiltrate a network, it is now a state of persistent barrages and simultaneous campaigns. Attacks against high-value targets still occur, but they are accompanied by a torrent of continuous assaults on political, economic and security interests.Reflecting this altered, enlarged, and pan-organizational battle-space, the Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium has been re-named AFCEA TechNet Cyber, forming one of the pillars of the TechNet brand and encompassing both DoD as well as civilian agencies across a broad spectrum of mission sets.
