December 9, 2014 - Article on Benefits of Early Exchanges with Industry Posted on Defense Acquisition University (DAU) Site

ZYGOS Consulting team members Nick Tsiopanas, Lawrence Asch, and Mike Malloy, supporting the Project Manager, Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program (PM AESIP) Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Services Acquisition Integrated Project Team (IPT) published an article on the important benefits of "Early, Ongoing, and Comprehensive Exchanges With Industry Prior to Receipt of Proposals." This collaborative effort between the Government and ZYGOS to develop, write, and post the article to DAU was performed with the intent of sharing the IPT's lessons learned, tools, techniques, and knowledge and showing other acquisition teams how to benefit from these types of early exchanges. The concepts and practices discussed in the article are consistent with the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Mythbusters guidance and DoD's Better Buying Power initiatives.
