The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has asked the National Contract Management Association , Woodlawn Chapter and Professional Services Council for help planning their Reverse Industry Day event scheduled for Tuesday, June 30, 2020, which will be held virtually.

Due to CMS limitations on virtual capacity, the event will have a call-in number for industry to listen in to the audio only. We invite you to register for this session and the dial-in information will be sent to you. Audio only registrants will be muted and in listen only mode.

In a Reverse Industry Day, the audience is the government workforce (Contracting Officers, Contract Specialist, Program Managers, Contracting Officer Representatives and other acquisition workforce personnel) and industry representatives are the presenters. The theme of the Reverse Industry Day is to provide CMS with industry views on best practices in the Pre-Award and Post-Award processes involving CMS procurements and to let CMS know what CMS can do to make improvements.

The agenda for the program can be found below. Industry speakers have already been selected as a callout was made back in May for applications.

Thank you to those of you that submitted a nomination to participate and those of you that are a participant in the 2nd CMS event.   

  We are confident in an excellent program for CMS that will inform future similar events.

Dorothy Callahan , NCMA Woodlawn President
