The first event, known as the Joint Acquisition Agility Summit, resulted in practitioner collaboration across the Department of Defense and provided OTA practitioners a network of professionals to tap into. The results were briefed to DOD Senior leaders, who instituted the DAU Community of Practice, and opened the chain of communication for input on OTA policy and guidance. The Joint Acquisition Solutions Summit (JASS) will take that impact to the next level, bring together practitioners shaping current policies, and briefing ideas for improvement and innovation directly to DOD and Service Officials.
Attendees can expect to baseline the results and progress from the previous JAAS; provide updates on new policy generated since; then convene a brainstorming and solution discovery intensive to develop short and long term initiatives for continued improvement.
Attendees will participate in an industry feedback and collaboration session with private sector financing and industry partners with experience bidding and executing OTA’s, to capture industry and 3rd party finance perspective of the current OTA environment; Teams will revise their proposed initiatives where appropriate; The teams will then brief out to senior DOD executives on what they learned; what their challenges are; and what their proposed initiatives entail.
