OMB’s Strategy for Centralizing Mission Support: Discussing the Impacts of QSMOs on Support Services

American Institute of Architects
1735 New York Ave, NW
Washington DC,

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at 9:30am - 12:00pm

With OMB’s Memo M-19-16, a new strategy has been defined for managing support services across the government. Quality Service Management Offices (QSMOs) are being stood up to centralize, standardize, and manage major operational capabilities. This new approach will shape how agencies and industry organize themselves around existing and planned shared services and technology solutions for years to come.

This session will explore this new approach and its impact on government-wide mission support services with discussion and panels from the key government leaders responsible for bringing OMB’s vision into reality. Please join us for a morning of conversation about these existing developments in the shared services landscape.

[NOTE: The Academy is co-sponsoring this meeting with another organization.  Please note that information collected for your registration will be shared with the co-sponsor.]
