The Defense Information Systems Agency’s present and future industry partners joined the agency for a virtual Forecast to Industry 2020 Thursday, Dec. 3.
This annual event provides industry representatives with in-depth information about the agency’s upcoming acquisition and procurement plans, and offers a forum to collaborate with DISA in defense of the nation.
The theme for this year’s event, “60 Years of Service: Ensuring Warfighter-Industry Partnerships,” refers to DISA, mission partners and industry working together to help achieve the agency’s no-fail mission to connect and protect the warfighter in cyberspace while empowering operations and increasing lethality across every warfighting domain.
DISA Director and Joint Force Headquarters-Department of Defense Information Network Commander Navy Vice Adm. Nancy A. Norton’s opening remarks expressed her appreciation for these engagements, and new and continuing partnerships.
“This year, industry helped us to maintain mission readiness while confronting a global health crisis and ensuring the Department of Defense is prepared to operate in an era of great power competition,” she said. “Since our mission is so critical, we emphasize building a high-trust culture at DISA that extends to the way we engage with mission partners and industry at all levels.”
