| Federal Acquisition Service Commissioner Julie Dunne
Post filed in: Acquisition

In my last blog post, I outlined all the ways GSA is enhancing the acquisition experience through our Federal Marketplace Strategy and I invited you to join me at our Federal Acquisition Service Training (FAST) 2020 Conference on April 14-16, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia, to hear more about those initiatives.

Today, I’m encouraging you to join us at FAST 2020 not just to hear from me, but from several other government and industry acquisition leaders including GSA’s Administrator Emily Murphy. Joining her on stage will be Office of Federal Procurement Policy Administrator Michael Wooten and Department of Defense Chief Management Officer Lisa Hershman. It's a line-up you don’t want to miss!

We also have a robust training agenda planned with over 180 training courses and the potential to earn 20 continuous learning points. The training tracks cover a range of topics from the basics of acquisition to the most advanced procurement issues. We’ll also cover hot topics such as the latest on the Federal Marketplace Strategy reforms, MAS consolidation, and supply chain security. These sessions, coupled with our e-tools lab, showroom floor exhibits, and limitless networking opportunities make this a top-tier acquisition conference for those responsible for mission-critical spending.

Exhibit booth sales for GSA industry partners are also available on a first come, first serve basis. Purchase of one booth gets you four attendee passes. Sign-up now for the opportunity to meet your contracting officer and your customers.

We’ve consistently heard from federal agencies and our industry partners that valuable training and collaboration opportunities provided by GSA are still very much needed. As we make major changes to the federal procurement landscape through the Multiple Award Schedules Consolidation, GSA is developing new tools and resources to support this community of professionals. And, we’re offering free registration for federal attendees, both civilian and military to make the training accessible.

I encourage acquisition professionals and industry partners to register today to learn about what GSA and the federal procurement community are doing to Advance Acquisition.

Note: Media representatives that wish to attend and cover the GSA Federal Acquisition Training Symposium must request press registration 30 days prior to the event. Contact: press@gsa.gov to register.
