In September 2014, Frank Kendall,  Office of the Under Secretary of Defense Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, published a White Paper known as “Better Buying Power 3.0”.

Better Buying Power (BBP) is based on the principle that continuous improvement is the best approach to improving the performance of the defense acquisition enterprise. The evolution from BBP 1.0 to BBP 2.0 was based on the premise that emphasis would shift as initiatives were put in place, experience was accumulated, data was collected and analyzed, and conditions changed. BBP 3.0 continues that approach with a shift in emphasis toward achieving dominant capabilities through innovation and technical excellence.  In June of this year, Dr. Michelle Bailey, Professor, Systems Engineering Management for the Defense Acquisition University provided an analysis of the White Paper for the National Contract Management Association.

NCMA-WI is pleased to be able to present this webinar to our members and friends.   Please join us as we learn what is entailed in this continuing effort to move the Department of Defense to best practices and better governmental outcomes to acquisitions.

This morning session offers the opportunity to meet other NCMA members and friends, have breakfast, network, learn, and maybe even have some fun while doing so.

This event will qualify for one Continuing Professional Education Credit.
