Original Air Date: Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Program Code: 170059
This webinar provides guidance to federal program managers and their staffs on what they should consider to ensure their program's acquisition strategy minimizes risk, and offers the best possible chance of success - meeting cost, schedule, and mission-driven performance objectives.
Selection of the appropriate contract type is one consideration, but there are several others that get the procurement headed in the right direction from the start.
