Procurement Division Meeting in Washington,  DC on Tuesday, July 10, 2018

The quarterly Procurement Division Meeting will address the continuing work and initial recommendations of the Section 809 Panel. The 18-person panel, created in section 809 of the FY 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and amended by section 863(d) of the NDAA for FY 2017 and sections 803(c) & 883 of the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2018, is tasked with finding ways to streamline and improve the defense acquisition process. The panel has 2 years to develop recommendations for changes in the regulation and associated statute to achieve those ends. The panel is charged with making recommendations that will shape DoD's acquisition system into one that is bold, simple, and effective.

The first report, issued in January, introduced the Dynamic Marketplace Framework - an approach for outcome-based rather than process-based acquisition. The next report is due by June 30. If implemented the recommendations of the panel are intended to have far-reaching consequences for procurement and acquisition actions.

The keynote presentation will be followed by a panel to take a deeper dive into the 809 recommendations.

Moderator: Bill Walter, Partner, Dixon Hughes Goodman
