2019 AFFIRM Lunch Speaker Series: Transforming Major Acquisitions in Government

2019 AFFIRM Lunch Speaker Series: Transforming Major Acquisitions in Government


Clyde’s of Gallery Place

Acquisitions in excess of $50 million in value account for one-third of the Federal government’s spending each year. These large contracts frequently support projects meant to transform areas of critical need. Yet major acquisitions can fail to achieve their goals because of the lack the program management and acquisition skills that are necessary to successfully manage complex procurement actions. These shortcomings are compounded by complex acquisition rules that reward compliance over creativity and results.

This briefing will bring together government knowledge-leaders to discuss best practices in acquisition management.

 This event is on the record.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Define the skillset required by program managers who are managing acquisitions in excess of $50 million in value.

  • Understand the cross-agency priority goals for improving the effectiveness of government acquisitions.

  • Explain the strategies that are supporting this goal:  strengthening talent capabilities, enhancing agency governance, and tracking investments using portfolio management principles.

  • Detail how agencies are successfully delivering mission results, customer service, and accountable stewardship.
