Registration for the Department of State Industry Day is Now Open

“Working overseas is hard. Those in the audience should be asking “why” and “how,” not necessarily “what.” There is plenty of contract opportunities; what the State Department in particular needs is contractors that can do the job required, and do it well.”

George Price, OSDBU Director, Department of State (2017 DOS Day, Hosted by SAME)

Registration is now open for the Department of State Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) Industry Day, hosted by SAME, in Washington, D.C., June 29-30. This market research event is designed to provide industry with information on competing for contracts with OBO.

Topics slated for presentation include both program overview and acquisition forecasts as well as specific issues tied to overseas work such as design integration; construction risk, supply chain, and cleared labor; and inflation and economic price adjustment. 

The two-day event also will include discipline-specific matchmaking such as architecture, interiors, construction management, climate security, and blast. It will include participation and support from the Office of Small & Disadvantaged Business Utilization, Office of the Procurement Executive, and Acquisition Management, all within OBO.
