ABOUT THE SUMMIT

Good acquisition means more than simply getting the best value for a given product or service. That is essential, but not sufficient. Increasingly, agencies look to their acquisition professionals to deliver products and services that strengthen operations, improve services and support the mission. Acquisition is mission-critical.

The Federal IT Acquisition Summit provides acquisition and management professionals with insights into key trends and developments in federal IT. During the plenary sessions, IT and acquisition leaders will discuss how agencies can address key issues around cybersecurity, IT modernization and cloud. The summit also features training and education around acquisition trends and major federal IT acquisition vehicles, with CPE credits available.
