Title: Defense Health Agency (DHA) Industry Day (Strategic Communications).
This notification is to announce that the Defense Health Agency (DHA) will host an industry day on Monday, April 24th, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Defense Health Headquarters (DHHQ), Salon A, 7700 Arlington Boulevard, Falls Church, Virginia 22042
PURPOSE: The DHA is hosting an industry day to gather information from businesses with expertise in strategic communications to learn of industry best practices to assist with the development of a new strategic communications requirement. The DHA Communications Division will present an overview of its strategic communications needs to include historical information of prior requirements, supported customers, and a discussion on future needs. PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO DISCUSSION ON EXISTING INCUMBENTS. After completion of the discussion, the DHA will accept white papers covering industry best practices and innovative ideas for consideration. Papers should be submitted not later than May 9, 2017 and be no longer than two pages in length. Please note, information contained in the existing statement of work need not be covered in the white papers, but instead we are seeking ideas that may not have been considered previously. The white papers may be considered when developing the new requirement and industry can expect a draft performance work statement (PWS) later in the calendar year for comment and questions.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: DHA encourages attendance from all industry businesses (small and other than small) with strategic communications capabilities.
