Federal Acquisition Takes Center Stage at Government Contract Management Symposium

The end of the year is a crucial time for the Federal Government. Agencies across all Federal Departments take the necessary steps to establish budgets and goals for 2015 and pinpoint the most pressing issues needing reform.

This holds true as agencies take steps to modernize federal acquisition services. The Federal Government continues to explore the latest innovative technologies to create the most efficient processes for acquisition management and the expending of citizen tax dollars.

Appian is proud to sponsor the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) for the 33rd Annual Government Contract Management Symposium (GCMS) being held at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, DC, November 3–4. During the two-day session, attendees will learn more on new and potential acquisition improvement legislation, and hear the latest discussions on Capitol Hill.

Event panel and break-out discussions will touch on various topics including:

  • New initiatives to improve government and industry relationships and communication;
  • Identifying and bringing new technologies and innovative companies, models and business practices to government and industry customers;
  • Best value techniques (including when lowest priced technically acceptable is most applicable);
  • Managing through a changing workforce and culture;
  • Learning what acquisition will look like in the future.

Appian centralizes processes, systems, and data to improve productivity and ease the burdens of government IT. Appian’s application platform can be deployed at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional commercial off-the-shelf solutions (COTS). The Appian BPM Suite allows federal agencies to modernize acquisition services by consolidating information from multiple systems into a single view, automating approval processes, and providing efficient task management in a collaborative environment.

Be sure to stop by Appian’s booth in the exhibitor’s hall to discuss our latest product innovations with members of the Appian Federal team. Make plans today to be a part of this exciting event.
