Upcoming Center Events
Budgetary Opportunities and Challenges for GovCon Programs
The Center for Government Contracting is pleased to partner with the Association for Corporate Growth to co-host an event, Budgetary Opportunities and Challenges for GovCon Programs, on December 11 from 7:30 to 9:30 am. The recurring cycle of continuing resolutions and budgetary uncertainty create significant turbulence for both company executives and government program managers. The start of programs can be delayed, development programs can be disrupted, and the sustainment of critical capabilities can be significantly impacted. Beyond these near-term impacts, the cyclical nature of spending over time has led to repeated boom or bust periods that also lead to increased inefficiencies and cost in the development and delivery of programs.
The discussion panel includes: Jeff Bohling, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Group, Perspecta; Chris O’Donnell, DASD, Platform and Weapon Portfolio Management; and Alan Stewart, CFO, Peraton. Jennifer Taylor, Senior Fellow, Center for Government Contracting, George Mason University will moderate the discussion, the topic of which is the focus of her soon to be published White Paper, "The Cost of Saving Money: The Negative Impact of Roller Coaster DoD Funding."
