The Coalition’s Fall Healthcare Forum, Excellence in Partnership (EIP) Awards Celebration, and Fall Training Conference put an exclamation point on what has been a very busy procurement year. All three events will be held at the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church, Virginia, with the Fall Healthcare Forum taking place from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm on November 7th, followed by our Annual EIP Awards Celebration later that evening between 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm, and the day-long Fall Training Conference on November 8th.

Once again, the Fall Healthcare Forum, EIP Celebration, and Training Conference will bring the procurement community together to share insights and analysis regarding key trends, opportunities, and challenges impacting the current and future Federal marketplace. This engagement reflects the best in partnership: government and industry acquisition professionals meeting, listening, and learning together to identify common sense policies, procedures, and programs that deliver best value outcomes that support customer agency missions and serve the American people.
