Session D1 -What Acquisition Professionals Need to Know About the Federal CIO Mandates
The Chief Information Officer of the Federal Government recently mandated dramatic changes in the way information technology systems, including the acquisition and contract writing systems you use, are developed and deployed. Complying with these mandates requires use of different technology approaches and a new way of thinking. Large parts of the government are moving quickly to adapt. Parts of the mandates are already showing up in passed legislation. In this session, you will learn about “Cloud First”, “Shared First”, “Future First”, and “Agile Development” and how they are already impacting the jobs of contracting officers and contracting specialists. We will also discuss anticipated additional directives around mobile and social technologies and how you take action today to incorporate them into your systems.
