CDAO to host upcoming procurement forum

On November 2, the Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO) announced that it will host the CDAO Procurement Forum on November 30. Registration must be completed by November 12 to participate.

The CDAO Procurement Forum will provide an opportunity for Business Development and Program Management executives better to understand CDAO’s ambition and procurement forecast for 2024. The Forum’s core objective is to expand and strengthen CDAO’s collaborative network with established and non-traditional partners in the continually evolving field of Artificial Intelligence. As CDAO’s ambition, objectives, and budget have doubled within the last year, we are actively seeking ambitious, innovative organizations to learn about our mission, discover opportunities, and compete to contribute to cutting-edge AI standards development within the Department of Defense (DOD).

At the Forum, action-focused discussions between industry partners, key DOD initiative leaders, and the CDAO will be professionally facilitated to expand and diversify CDAO’s industry base, understanding each stakeholder’s mission, needs, and opportunities to advance AI across the DOD and empowering industry partners with the information, tools, procurement forecasts, and other assets needed to compete in support of CDAO’s mission.

The topics of focus for the Forum are planned to include:

  • FY24 Procurement Forecast
  • Assisted Acquisition Procurements
  • Acquisition Ecosystem Primer

Additional focused discussion will be organized around the needs of key government stakeholders, including Responsible AI, Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), Task Force Lima, Digital Talent Management, and Enterprise Platform Capabilities (Advana).
