Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy and OSD(Comptroller) bring you the

2018 Procure-to-Pay Training Symposium!
Strengthening the Partnership Between Acquisition and Financial Management

The 2018 DoD Procure-to-Pay (P2P) Training Symposium, jointly hosted by Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy (DPAP) and the Office of the Secretary of Defense (Comptroller), will be held in Orlando, Florida, at the Hilton Orlando from April 2 – 5, 2018. This Symposium is designed to provide our contracting, logistics, and comptroller communities and our industry partners with a better understanding of requirements for standard data and processes, use of enterprise systems, and related internal controls that are in line with audit requirements to ensure efficient government management of P2P activities and taxpayer funds.

The Symposium will include the latest on P2P and audit initiatives from DoD and federal senior leaders, to include information on procurement data standards and tools, financial management reform, government furnished property, traceability and transparency of awards, and cybersecurity. The goal of the Symposium is to increase awareness of current contracting and finance trends, processes, and changing procedures and policies and to provide opportunity for the communities to come together and share problems and solutions.

The target audience is mid-level to senior government individuals that lead or are involved in implementing P2P initiatives and/or related enterprise systems from a policy or system perspective at their home offices or commands; including system administrators, functional super-users, and lead trainers. Industry leads working corporate implementation of DoD's P2P initiatives, as well as related industry system providers are also welcome to attend.
