This break-out session will provide attendees with a unique opportunity for an in-person, in-depth Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) training experience for all four of the GSA key GWAC programs including: Alliant, Alliant Small Business, 8(a)STARSII and VETS.

The training will cover: scope, ordering process, roles and responsibilities, resources and how to request a DPA and is designed for contract officers, contract specialists, contracting officer's technical representatives and program managers.
