The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) invites companies to participate in the 2020 DoD Acquisition Public-Private Talent Exchange Program. This six-month acquisition exchange program provides the opportunity for mid-career civilians from the private sector and government to gain a better understanding of each other's business operations and share innovative best practices.
Through the insights of both private-sector and DoD participants, companies will develop a better understanding of the needs and challenges of their government customers. Companies in the exchange will have the ability to implement these new insights and take a proactive approach to addressing present and future government challenges and creating innovative solutions to meet client needs.
A reciprocal approach will be used; there will be one government participant for each company participant. However, this is not a job swap. Each exchange participant will continue to be compensated by their employer throughout the duration of the exchange.
