The Department of Defense (DoD) Cloud Executive Steering Group (CESG) updated its plan to host an Industry Day for the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) Cloud acquisition on March 7, 2018. 

In order to accommodate broad participation given the overwhelming interest in attendance, organizations/companies are limited to sending three individuals or fewer. Media outlets requesting to cover the event are limited to one individual per outlet. Admittance to the event is not guaranteed and seating will be available on a first come, first served basis. Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. and the event will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. 

Parking is limited at the Sheraton Pentagon City and individuals are strongly encouraged to utilize public transportation and ride sharing options.

The event is physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for reasonable accommodations, sign language interpretation, or other auxiliary aids must be emailed to jedi-industry-day@dds.mil by the registration deadline on Feb. 28, 2018.

Open to the public, this unclassified event will outline the DoD’s plans for the JEDI Cloud acquisition. All interested parties from industry, academia, government, and media are encouraged to attend. 

Event coordinators will announce speaker names closer to the event. Additionally, a draft solicitation package is expected to be released concurrently that provides instructions for submitting written questions about the acquisition process or draft solicitation. No live questions will be fielded during the event. 

This announcement should not be interpreted as a Request for Proposal or a commitment by the U.S. Government. Also, the U.S. Government does not intend to award a contract on the basis of this Industry Day event or the pending draft solicitation package. The U.S. Government is not responsible for any costs incurred by travel or participation in this event or the draft solicitation process.
