On behalf of the Coalition for Government Procurement’s Board of Directors and Board of Advisors we are truly excited to be hosting our 35th Anniversary Celebration, Excellence in Partnership Honors and the 2014 Fall Conference! The 2014 Fall Training Conference: “35 Years in Government Procurement: Looking Back and Moving Forward” brings together procurement leaders from across government and industry for a “Myth Busters” dialogue honoring the past, but more importantly, focusing on the procurement system of the future. Engaging, thoughtful dialogue among and between government and industry procurement leaders is critical in striving towards a procurement system that delivers best value mission support for customer agencies and the American people.

Competing in the FY2015 Federal Market
Understanding the changing federal marketplace is vital for firms competing for agency requirements and delivering best value products, services and solutions for the American people. The Coalition is extremely pleased to bring acquisition leaders from the Department of Defense, the Air Force, Department of Homeland Security, GSA, OMB, NASA, Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Department of the Treasury together for a cross cutting, Myth-Busters dialogue. As such, the 2014 Fall Training Conference provides a wonderful opportunity for firms to learn more about key procurement programs, operations, and initiatives like Better Buying Power, the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI), GSA Schedules, OASIS, NASA SEWP, NIH CIO-SP3, and the Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS). There also will be sessions focusing on cybersecurity, electronic platforms (FEDMALL to GSA Advantage!) and innovation in federal procurement! Simply put, the 2014 Fall Training Conference is a “can’t miss” opportunity to learn more about the policies, procedures and programs shaping the future of the federal procurement marketplace.
