One of my priorities is to promote meaningful communications, and at our latest learning event, “Effective Pricing Strategies in a Changing World,” DHS and industry partners came together to share best practices, explore innovation opportunities, and understand business processes related to pricing. Over 350 DHS employees and industry representatives participated in the Acquisition Innovations in Motion (AIiM) learning event which consisted of two panel discussions featuring pricing subject matter experts from DHS Headquarters, Components, and industry.
I want to emphasize one of the key takeaways from the event: early communications up‑front lead to better acquisition outcomes. I value the phenomenal candid discussion that took place and the pricing strategies and tools that were shared. DHS is committed to increasing the level and type of engagement with industry, and I look forward to our next major AIiM event, Reverse Industry Day IV!
