As The General Services Administration pushes forward with its efforts to accelerate the procurement processes for information technology projects throughout the government, it is putting new focus and efforts into providing tools and expertise through the Centers of Excellence, IT Category office and Technology Transfer Services. At the core of all of these programs is providing expertise where needed to speed replacement of legacy acquisition systems so the new systems can respond quickly to supply chain issues, new technological developments such as AI, and glean needed information from the data.
During this digital event, Nextgov/FCW editors will explore what changes have been put in place, how increased industry engagement is vital to all the players and how the process is being simplified. We’ll discuss the challenges that agencies face with funding, resources that are available to help them, and provide tips and lessons learned for those still in the early stages of the journey.
