How do major Defense Department contractors select their subcontractors?
If you want answers to this question — and even more insights into doing business in the Defense industry — you should plan to be in attendance at “Creating the Next: Defense Innovation Conference” to be held on Monday, January 14, 2019.
Included in the conference is a panel presentation by representatives of large contractors — including Lockheed Martin, LMI, and Huntington Ingalls Industries — who will describe how their companies pick subcontractors.
The Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center (GTPAC) is hosting this day-long event to provide businesses with details on how to contribute to the achievement of the Defense Department’s mission.
A featured speaker at the event is Lisa R. Sanders who is Director of Science and Technology for the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM). She will be speaking about SOCOM’s contracting priorities, problems to solve, and doing business with SOCOM — with a focus on options available to small businesses.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to meet and hear from leaders in the Defense industry! Advance registration is required.
