The Vendor Industry Day announcement invites current and potential industry partners to Gunter Annex for presentations from PEO-BES leadership and program leads on the BES mission, direction, upcoming opportunities, and challenges.
This event will also feature the opportunity for one-on-one meetings with BES and Program leadership. Also, it was announced that this industry day will “feature a live Twitter Q&A.”
The Air Force PEO BES, Mr. Robert Carl Shofner, who is now PEO NETCENTS welcomed a packed auditorium at Gunter Annex this morning. With the theme “Straight Talk about NETCENTS-II,” more than 250 people from 132 companies signed up to attend this Vendor Exchange Forum. Mr. Shofner offered “good NETCENTSII news” saying there would be three contract awards in the next six months, but wouldn’t disclose which contracts those were. He stated that the NETOPS Full & Open Contract was pushed out to “prevent a gap in capabilities for our users.”
Mr. Shofner discussed the executive support for the Mandatory Use Policy of NETCENTSII coming from Air Force CIO, Gen. Basla, and Gen Davis as SAF/AQ.
Other topics discussed included training initiatives, managing expectations, and a goal to “recapture the Center of Excellence for business enterprise systems capability. When asked about ECSS Lessons Learned during the Q&A he mentioned a number but stated the critical ones were infrastructure impact, a need to embrace business process reengineering, and acquisition skill sets.
