Fiscal Year 2012 Webinar


On March 12, 2012, VA hosted its third Supplier Relationship Transformation webinar from 1:00pm - 3:00pm EST.  Throughout the year, VA collected feedback from the supplier community and from internal VA Program Offices about what is and what is not working with VA’s acquisition and procurement processes.  During this Webinar, VA reported summary findings from our feedback collection efforts and addressed what we have done, what we are doing, and what we will continue to do in the future to address this feedback.
