About the Presentation

In government contracting, the relationship between the Acquisitions Office and the Program Management Office can often be an onerous one. With each potentially having differing goals and objectives, clear communication and partnering can be complex and often nonexistent. We will explore the responsibilities of both parties, as well as discuss some best practices for ensuring collaboration and mutual goal-setting while ensuring appropriate utilization of funds.
