  • The interim report on the Section 809 Panel on Streamlining and Codifying Acquisition Regulations;
  • Acquisition innovations such as Reverse Industry Days;
  • How to build a more agile acquisition workforce; and
  • The DOD Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations and the Defense Procurement Acquisition Policy and more.
