APG Advanced Planning Briefing to Industry to take place in June
On April 6, the U.S. Army posted an update about the 2020 The Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) Advance Planning Briefing to Industry (APBI).
The APG APBI and Technological Expo at APG, MD, has been postponed until 9-11 June 2020. This announcement updates information that was provided in the previous save-the-date message. Please note that details, including specific organizational briefing schedules, remain subject to change.
The goal of the APG APBI and Tech Expo is to provide industry with networking opportunities for both large and small businesses. The APBI will describe potential future contracting opportunities for mission areas that focus on: Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance; Research and Development; Test and Evaluation; Chemical and Biological Defense; and APG Garrison. The APG APBI will identify potential contracting opportunities that are aligned with the roadmaps of each respective organization, specifically focusing on Fiscal Years 2021–2022. The APBI slides are anticipated to be posted electronically two weeks prior to the start of the event. The Government will not hear formal bids from industry, as the purpose of the APBI is for the Government to brief upcoming opportunities to industry to help it better understand Army capability requirements and shape its internal development efforts.
Based on feedback received following the 2019 APBI and Tech Expo, the 2020 event will include an increased number of breakout sessions and an improved schedule to reduce conflicts and allow attendees to participate in sessions of most value to them. Currently the schedule includes 11 main-stage contract opportunity briefings from major tenant commands and 20 breakout sessions offering program deep dives and less formal discussion opportunities with organizational leaders. We expect additional breakout sessions will be added as the planning process moves forward.
