Virtual Monthly Speaker Series: Accelerating Acquisition in Government Through Data

This event qualifies for 1 CEUs

The Federal government acquisition process is experiencing a renaissance as procurement officials use innovative tools to enhance the efficiency of the entire acquisition process from budget and acquisition planning to contract closeout.


Procurement transformation is enabling agencies to remove barriers faced by underserved individuals and communities. Agencies, modeling commercial purchasing practices, are forging new paths to promote continual input and process improvement.


Join us to explore how government acquisition is using data and emerging technology to better document common business needs across agencies and focus on outcomes, data, processes, and performance.


This event is on the record. There is 1 CEU available for this program.


Learning Objectives 

  • Discuss processes that help to manage risks, improve collaboration, enhance productivity, and accelerate innovation and mission achievement.

  • Detail the role of data in contracting decision-making and the use of automation to automate purchasing, ensure diversity of supplier, and reduce errors.
