AI/RPA & The Future of Acquisition:

The Impact of New Technologies

On the Acquisition Workforce

And Mission Delivery


Wednesday, November 13, 2019

8:00 am – 10:30 am

National Academy of Public Administration

1600 K Street, NW


The acquisition profession is being transformed by the introduction of new technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Process Automation (AI/RPA). These technologies will lead to improvements in the effectiveness of acquisition professionals and could improve program management and mission delivery.

But this is no certain future. The use of AI/RPA in the acquisition arena is just now being tested and understood and many questions remain about how government agencies and leaders could best take advantage of these revolutionary technologies.

SEA’s Acquisition Community of Change, in partnership with the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA), will host this first in a series of seminars on AI/RPA & The Future of Acquisition. This is the beginning of a public/private conversation that could lead to recommendations that influence government-wide applications of AI/RPA in federal acquisition practices and processes.

Register now for this free seminar.

Seating is limited.The results of the seminar will be presented at a panel at SEA’s 2019 Presidential Rank Awards Leadership Summit on December 17th at the Mayflower Hotel. Follow-on activities will continue in 2020 through a series of other seminars focusing on the use of AI/RPA in the acquisition/procurement process.
