Defense Standardization Program Industry Day
You are cordially invited to attend the Defense Standardization Program
(DSP) Industry Day hosted by the Defense Standardization Program Office (DSPO) that
will be held on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at LMI in Tysons, VA, from 9:00 am –
4:00 pm. The objective of this event is
to bring together government, industry and standards developing organizations to
show case current features, modules and functions available in ASSIST, and to discuss
an upcoming initiative to evaluate, assess and enhance ASSIST.
ASSIST is a comprehensive
system used by the Department of Defense (DoD) to develop, coordinate,
distribute, and manage defense and federal specifications and standards, international
standardization agreements, military handbooks, commercial item descriptions,
data item descriptions, and related technical documents prepared in accordance
with the policies and procedures of the DSP.
I expect the DSP Industry Day
topics will provide a platform for open discussion and dialogue between
government and subject matter experts from industry and standards developing
organizations interested in understanding current defense standardization
management processes, and how ASSIST supports them, and in potential
opportunities for doing business with the government.
This event is free and open to the public:
however, attendees must register in advance, by submitting their name, address,
and a brief synopsis of their organization’s services and experience by e-mail to ASSISTHELP@dla.mil no

Innovation for Tomorrow’s Procurement World
The government marketplace is constantly shifting. Recently, there’s been a lot of discussion on how small, innovative firms, can successfully introduce their innovations into the marketplace. Sometimes this occurs through a partnership with a National Lab or programs like the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or through unconventional contracting efforts like DoD’s “Hack the Pentagon Pilot Program.” This educational conference will address how businesses can find a door into the government, what creative procurement approaches work in the government marketplace, and how Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs) can support the shift in focus to innovation.
