TBM Public Sector Summit @ Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center

REI Systems is a Gold Sponsor for the 2018 TBM Council Public Sector Summit

The public sector continues to embrace the TBM Council’s standards, education and collaboration. In 2016, the TBM Council led the 2016 Federal Commission on IT Cost, Opportunity, Strategy, and Transparency (IT COST) recommendations for managing federal IT spend. In 2017, they united public and private sector CIOs and CFOs at the 2017 White House Summit on Technology Business Management to show federal IT and finance leaders how to effectively manage spend.

And now, in 2018, the TBM Council will host 200+ public and private sector executives at their first annual Public Sector Summit on Technology Business Management to help provide leadership perspectives on TBM and broaden the adoption of TBM Taxonomy across the public sector. This one day summit will help drive executive commitment and support for TBM beyond compliance and share some of the practices that have worked in the private and public sectors to drive organizational change and support for TBM.

This summit is free for public sector employees with valid .gov, .edu or other valid government domains. Private sector executives in IT and IT Finance pay a fee of $195. All public sector consultants, technology vendors, and other advisory practices must pay an event fee of $1995 (limited to 30 spots on a first come first serve).
