2015 Spring Training Conference is Very Near!

I won’t be writing a typical comment today as I’ll be out of the office presenting at GSA’s public meeting in regards to amending the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) to include clauses that would require vendors to report transactional data from orders and prices paid by ordering activities.  Much more on this topic to come after the conclusion of today’s meeting on the proposed rule.  In the interim, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that we are just over a week away from our 2015 Spring Training Conference, titled The Business Of Government.


On April 28th at the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church, we will host speakers from the General Services Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, Small Business Administration, Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Defense.


Keynote Speaker Denise Turner Roth, Acting Administrator for the U.S. General Services Administration, will kick off the morning sessions where she will be discussing Managing the Business of Government – GSA’s Role.   We are looking forward to her remarks as this will be the first time she has had the opportunity to address the Coalition.


The morning session will also include panel discussions with topics such as Ten Tips for Capturing The Federal Market 2015 And Beyond, The Impact of Small Business Policy on The Federal Market, and a legal panel discussing From Risks to Rewards – Strategies for Managing Liabilities of your Federal Contract.


During our sit down lunch, participants will have the privilege of listening to Kevin Youel Page, Deputy Commissioner, Federal Acquisition Service, GSA, share his thoughts on The Status of MAS Reform – Update on GSA Initiatives and what they Mean for your Business.


The afternoon will consist of two groups of Myth Buster Breakout Sessions, where everyone will have the opportunity to choose from seven different topics that include over 25 different government panelist.
