Federal Insights Exchange Featuring DHS Procurement Innovation Lab (PIL)

This event qualifies for 1 CLPs

The pandemic forced DHS to rethink acquisition for a telework environment.  This new operational environment is shaping the way Department of Homeland Security will acquire goods and services long after we return the work place.  Created in March 2015, the DHS Procurement Innovation Lab (PIL) is an initiative aimed at experimenting with innovative techniques for increasing efficiencies in the procurement process and institutionalizing best practices. Join us to hear from Polly Hall, Director of the DHS Procurement Innovation Lab on the virtualization of procurement innovation and its near term roadmap. In this interactive panel moderated by Ann-Marie Johnson, Vice-President, ArdentMC, Polly will discuss PIL procurement practices with small business executives, Peter Anih, CTO, Dynanet and John Cyrus, Director, HighPoint Global.

Learning objectives:

- Understand the PIL’s vision and priorities over the next 3-5 years

- Find out about how the pandemic has introduced both challenges and unlocked new ways of running acquisitions at DHS

- Understand government and industry perspectives on DHS procurement innovation practices
