Dau South Region's 2nd Annual Conference and Expo.

On Feb. 18-19, 2004, over 200 government, military, and industry contract management professionals met at the Huntsville Marriott to participate in the DAU South's 2nd Annual Conference and Expo. "Contracting: Smart Business for Mission Support" was the theme selected by DAU South Region's Contract Management Department, who spearheaded this year's event.

The combined efforts of co-chairs Ron Fontenot, department chair, and Phyllis Roberts, professor of contracting, resulted in an agenda that included top leaders in the field of contract management and that served as "Rapid Deployment Training" for participants.

Jim McCullough, dean of DAU South Region, kicked off the conference. Linda Neilson, executive director, acquisition workforce and career management, gave an informative lunchtime presentation on AT & L Workforce Initiatives. General session and workshop topics included: Contingency Contracting; Contractors on the Battlefield; Revision of OMB Circular A-76-Acquisition Update; and DFARS Transformation. Guest speakers included Ron Poussard, deputy director, defense acquisition regulations system, Office of the Director, Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy (DPAP); and Mark Lumer, contracting executive, U.S. Army Space and Missile Command.

To underscore the timeliness of the conference, a memorandum from Deidre Lee, director, DPAP, entitled "Contract Period for Task and Delivery Order Contracts," was issued on Feb. 18. Conference attendees received the memorandum hot off the press.

The complete list of speakers and their topics may be found on the DAU South Region Web site at <>.
