On September 6, 2017, the Defense Logistics Agency released the Request for Information (RFI)/ASSIST Industry Day Announcement (Solicitation Number: SP4701-17-RFI-0002) to obtain information to assist the Defense Standardization Program Office (DSPO) in understanding the capabilities available in the industry marketplace and identify future ASSIST support services requirements. The objective of the RFI is to get feedback on the draft Performance Work Statement (PWS) and input from Contractors regarding tools and technology to enhance and modernize ASSIST.  Based on responses to this RFI, Contractors will be invited to attend the ASSIST Industry Day to discuss the draft PWS, and offered an opportunity to demonstrate their tools and capabilities.  To obtain a copy of the RFI and submission guidelines, visit https://www.fbo.gov.


Industry Day

The ASSIST Industry Day and One-on-One Sessions will be held on October 16-18, 2017 at LMI located at in 7940 Jones Branch Drive, Tysons, VA 22102.  The first day of this event will consist of informational and technical briefings, followed by a Q&A session, and then One-on-One session appointments for interested attendees. Attendees may include industry representatives as well as those from DoD, federal government and universities who may find the presentations supportive of their respective research and development activities. 

The One-on-One Sessions are intended to allow for a focused discussion of issues directly related to the RFI and draft PWS, and for interested attendees to present their submitted white paper.  Appointments for One-on-One Sessions will be reserved on a first come, first served basis; and will be limited to 60 minutes per Contractor.

Pre-registration is a requirement for this event. All attendees must register in advance by submitting the Industry Day Registration Form by September 29, 2017. Please indicate on the Registration Form if you would like to sign up for a One-on-One session. Please be prepared to discuss the questions asked in the RFI, which will be used to guide the discussions.
