Program Manager Briefing Series

AOC's highly anticipated Program Manager (PM) Briefing Series returns to AOC 2023. This program focuses on bridging requirements to programs and informing the industry on the acquisition milestone chart for contracting opportunities. Briefers are invited to present specific, unclassified information that is otherwise not publicly available about upcoming opportunities, including projected timelines, rough orders of magnitude for contract size (either personnel or dollar value), preferred or projected contract vehicle(s), setaside status, and comprehensive technical requirements. Each session will offer open questions and answers, allowing participants to seek greater clarity on the details of the upcoming opportunities.

This program is open to booth personnel and master pass attendees only — closed to media.
