Army invites industry to APG Advanced Planning Briefing
Team Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) will conduct the fourth annual Advanced Planning Briefing to Industry on November 3-5, 2015 at Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG), MD. The goal of the event is to provide the industrial base with networking opportunities and information on upcoming and long term potential contracting opportunities for mission areas that focus on: Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR); Research and Development (R&D); Chemical/Biological Defense (CBD). The APBI will present potential contracting opportunities that are closely aligned with the technology roadmaps of each respective organization, specifically focusing on Fiscal Years’ 2016 and 2017 opportunities. Slides containing this information will be posted electronically following the APBI event. The government will not hear formal bids from industry as the purpose of the APBI is only for the government to brief upcoming opportunities to industry.
As the Army strives to provide optimal support and capabilities with limited funds and resources, the ability to receive industry’s input and innovation through avenues such as the APBI is crucial. With new technologies rapidly emerging in the commercial environment, this exchange of information will continue to advance solutions, ideas, capabilities and efficiencies. Team APG is aware of the challenges faced by small businesses and has worked to encourage their participation. The agility and innovation small businesses bring to the Army will help shape future development efforts, leverage competition and create new solutions.
