GSA's Acquisition Training and Appreciation Conference Returns

Acquisition professionals from across the country gathered this week at the U.S. General Services Administration's 2009 Excellence in Acquisition Training and Appreciation Conference in Las Vegas, Nev., to discuss ways to improve the federal acquisition process and address current issues. It was the first time the conference had been held in five years.

"Bringing back this conference is one of the many ways we're renewing our commitment to acquisition professionals and recognizing their expanded role in the President’s transparency and procurement reform efforts," said Michael Robertson, GSA Chief Acquisition Officer. "We're challenging our acquisition professionals to deliver unprecedented results, so we're making sure they're equipped with the right skills, the right tools and the right policies to get the job done."

GSA, sponsor of the conference, is the only civilian agency whose primary mission is the acquisition of goods, services, and real property for the entire federal government, including offices, courthouses, telecommunication services, vehicles, and contract support.

Additionally, the conference offered access to experts on such topics as:

  • The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act;
  • Green contracting;
  • Small businesses;
  • Future of acquisition policy;
  • Acquisition systems;
  • Managing cost, schedule and performance; and,
  • Performance metrics.

In an effort to foster the development of acquisition professionals recognized for high performance and support, as well as provide education and learning opportunities, the conference offered 28 classes taught by subject matter experts. Attendees earn a training certificate upon completion, which may provide continuous learning points toward professional development.
