Power Breakfast: Doing Business with Veterans Affairs

This event qualifies for 2 CPEs

As the agency responsible for providing benefits and services to veterans and their families, the Veterans Affairs Department controls one of the largest IT budget in the federal government, spending over $10 billion annually. IT is critical to VA internal operations as well as how it delivers health care services to its constituents.


This translates into a broad range of opportunities from building and maintaining IT infrastructure and networks to modernizing operations such as the electronic health record project. VA is also at the forefront of using artificial intelligence to improve outcomes as well as data analytics to make better decisions.


In this Power Breakfast, we’ll hear from VA leaders as they share their priorities and initiatives for the coming year. They’ll also explain the best paths for doing business with VA along with the missteps they see contractors commonly make.


The key takeaways for attendees will be a better understanding of how VA does business, what the competitive landscape looks like, and the priorities that will be driving opportunities going forward.
