Acquisition Innovation Roundtables (AIR) are typically small working groups of government and industry leaders who work together to make improvements in targeted business areas. Often, these activities result in webinars designed to teach about what we learned or in other tools and resources that enhance the department’s business environment. AIR activities are conducted under the Acquisition Innovations in Motion (AIiM) framework. If appropriate, these activities are announced on SAM.gov. Here you will find archived information about the activities, including roundtable outcome documents and recorded webinars.
