Seminars and Exercise
“Industry Perspective” Seminars for Program Manager Certification Courses
Council members lead discussions before Program Manager Level III certification courses at the Homeland Security Acquisition Institute about the importance of communication with industry throughout the different stages of the acquisition process.
Mock Contract Debriefing Exercises
Council members participated as role players and observers in Mock Debriefing Exercises with DHS contracting officers. These exercises created a real world learning experience for DHS by allowing them to practice their debriefing skills in front of an industry audience. These exercises teach government how to communicate the right information to industry during the debriefing process and provide industry with a better understanding of the government’s view of the process.
