Description: The U.S. Army Contracting Command – Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG), Huachuca Division anticipates hosting an Industry Day on October 28, 2015 at Ft. Huachuca, AZ. The goal of the event is to provide our industry partners with networking opportunities and information for mission areas that focus on: information technology; test and evaluation; military intelligence; cyber security; communications, security, and logistics; engineering and systems integration; and base operations services support. We hope to have participation by senior leaders representing all of our customers: U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM), U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence (USAICOE), U.S. Army Electronic Proving Ground – Ft. Huachuca (EPG), U.S. Army Information Systems Command (ISEC), U.S. Army Communications, Security, Logistics Agency (CSLA), and Ft. Huachuca Garrison. The intent is to provide industry with information on the needs, challenges, and the direction of these organizations and how those relate to upcoming procurements in the current acquisition environment during this time of constrained resources.

Discussions will be closely aligned with the technology roadmaps for the organizations, focusing on the next three to five years. Slides containing this information will be posted electronically prior to the event and questions solicited which will be answered that day. The Government will not hear formal bids from industry nor will one-on-one or group meetings be held at this time as the purpose of the event is only for the Government to provide information. However, other events may be held in the future to do so. The Division Chief for ACC-APG, Huachuca Division, will also be providing information on our structure, various acquisition topics, strategy development, long range opportunities, and trends in acquisition.
