VA TAC Industry Engagement 2017

 

                                                                  2018 Industry Engagement

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Technology Acquisition Center (TAC) will be hosting its Annual Industry Engagement event on June 7th from 8:30am to 12:00 pm at its Eatontown, NJ facility.  Similar to past years the event will be live streamed so Industry participants do not have to travel unless they are able. 

The purpose of the event is to bring our Information Technology industry partners and VA personnel together virtually or physically allowing the VA to share new initiatives/focus areas while also identifying upcoming contracting opportunities and answering participant questions. 

The event will be conducted in a small group setting and will include presentations from Senior Leaders within the Department as well as its Contracting Officers (COs). 

All attendees will be able to download the TAC’s to date fiscal year end requirements and physically present participants will also receive a hardcopy.

The event will conclude with an informal networking session.  The event will include a CO question and answer panel so please submit your questions in advance to INDUSTRYENGAGEMENT.TAC@va.gov.
