About the Presentation
PMIAA Impacts on Federal Acquisition
John Driessnack will discuss the potential impacts the Program Management Improvement and Accountability Act (PMIAA) law passed in Dec 2016 will have on the federal acquisition process. He will do this through the lens of his two PMI White Papers, "Using PMI Standards Framework to improve US Federal Government Capital Investment Outcomes" (2015), and "Update OMB Circular A-11 and Capital Programming Guide" (to be published in early 2017). The second white paper addresses specific recommendations for the new administration to implement PMIAA. The audience will be encouraged to note what they are observing within federal agencies.

Each event will present specific learning points focusing on building a talent triangle of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management skills, unique to the presenter's area of expertise and the subject matter discussed while directly relating to improving the practice of managing projects and leading others.
