The Defense Department invites companies to participate in its 2020 DoD Acquisition Public-Private Talent Exchange Program. The six-month exchange program provides the opportunity for mid-career private sector and government acquisition professionals to gain improved understanding of each other’s business operations and share innovative best practices.
Through the insights of both private-sector and DOD participants, companies will develop a better understanding of the needs and challenges of their government customers. Companies in the exchange will have the ability to implement new insights and take a proactive approach to addressing present and future government challenges and creating innovative solutions to meet client needs.
A reciprocal approach will be used; there will be one government participant for each company participant, but it is not a job swap. Participants will continue to be compensated by their employer throughout the duration of the exchange.
