October 25-27, 2015 – ACT-IAC Executive Leadership Conference

The Executive Leadership Conference (ELC) is considered by many to be the premier conference in the government IT community and brings together the leaders of the government IT community.

The theme for this year is “Government 2020 – Imagine the Possibilities.” This year’s government and industry chairs are Steve Cooper and Tony Bardo. With the advances in technology, Government and Industry are changing the way in which they interact.

We will hear from nationally prominent speakers and work across government and industry to learn new ideas and techniques.

ELC 2015 will focus on new technologies and service-delivery models that now allow us to meet and exceed mission challenges with greater efficiency and effectiveness. Among the topics that we will examine is; NS2020 and the evolving strategy for the next generation of telecommunications and information technology (IT) infrastructure services; Market Intelligence and the challenge to expand the focus of engagement with industry away from simply focusing on requirements definition done on a transactional basis, to a more strategic view that is relationship oriented will also be discussed; and FITARA, now that it is law, how this legislation may be interpreted, implemented, enforced, measured, and affect government acquisitions.
