Hot Button Issues from the Government’s Viewpoint 
Senior procurement leaders from the three FAR Council agencies (DoD, GSA, NASA) will discuss key policy issues within government contracting. What are the top issues that currently concern them the most? Which issues require the biggest investments of their time? What trends – both positive and negative – have they identified within the govcon ecosystem? This session will allow industry leaders to hear about federal contracting “hot button” issues from the Government’s point of view and will support a more constructive dialogue as private and public sector leaders share their perspectives.
