    2010 ITAAC Membership Briefing 2010 ITAAC Membership Briefing Presentation Transcript

    • Interoperability Clearinghouse (ICH) A not-for-profit research institute 501.C6 IT Acquisition Advisory Council (IT-AAC) A non-partisan think tank, 501.C3 Assuring the Business Value of Technology Partnership Prospectus 904 Clifton Drive * Alexandria * Virginia 22308 www.IT-AAC.org * (703) 768-0400 IT-AdvisoryCouncil@ICHnet.org 2/25/2010 ™
    • ICH &IT-AAC Objectives Assuring The Business Value of Technology ICH Methods Challenge: Reducing market barriers to entry and improved transparency. IT Acquisition Process is broken and conflicted. Dedication: Improving IT Acquisition Efficiency and Effectiveness for commercial solution providers (COTS, Open Source), thereby reducing sales cycles, cost. Services: Market research, past performance validation, capture strategy, solution interchange forums Market Focus: Business Systems, Cyber Security, Info Sharing, IT Infrastructure, Health IT Results: Level Playing field, increase market penetration, reduce sales cycle time and cost, increased budget allocation to COTS/Open Source solutions by 30%.
    • Federal IT Acquisition Issues
      • Federal IT Acquisition Process is Broken: Long (91 Months), costly, non-predictive. A waste of critical resources.
      • Conflict of Interest rules - Increased enforcement : traditional trade associations, consultants, and lobbyists ineffective, favoring the status quo.
      • “ Low cost bids” vs “best value award”: Acquisition culture and dis-incentives favor Low Cost. Adoption of “innovative solutions” and “commercial best practices” are blocked from serious consideration.
      • Government leaders are clamoring for collaborative mechanisms by which proven solutions can be identified early and adopted quickly.
    • Federal IT Acquisition Process is Broken
      • ICH’s Architecture Assurance Method (AAM) has proven to reduce cycle times and improve timely decision making.
      • IT-AAC recommendation for Acquisition reform already impacting acquisition legislation.
      • IT-AAC monthly member forums bring focus to both root cause and potential solutions.
      • ICH’s non-profit research institute is providing actionable mechanisms, agency by agency:
        • BTA, AF, Army, DOJ, DHS, VA, OSD HA, PTO, GPO
      • IT-AAC and ICH are driving forces for change
        • Innovators and Non-Traditional Contractors Benefit.
    • Increased Enforcement of Conflict of Interest Rules
      • Increased lobby restrictions reducing the Impact of Traditional Trade Associations.
        • Encouraging the use of conflict-free co-laboratories
        • Solution Architecture Innovation Lab (SAIL)
        • IT-AAC’s public/private partnership provides a conflict free structure for industry/government interchange.
        • ICH and IT-AAC - Members gain a voice and means of early solution validation in the Governmental selection process.
      • ICH’s Sole Source Contracts/Vehicles provide a basis for agencies to test and validate potential solutions and architectures.
    • “ Low cost bids” vs “Best value award”
      • Ability to bid ICH’s proven methods, research data and expertise, assuring the technological business value and mission assurance.
      • ICH has government - approved recommended and gained expertise for assessing market capabilities and predicting ROI.
      • IT-AAC and ICH functions as a “FFRDC” with which our Members can partner and team.
      • ICH’s ability to capture, audit and adapt industry best practices enables government to validate member best practice offers (COTS, Open Source).
    • Clamoring for Collaborative Mechanisms
      • ICH government sponsored “collaboratory” and contract vehicles enables a high integrity solution architecture information exchange.
      • IT AAC is bringing together top leaders from congress, academia, agencies and industry to reshape acquisition policy.
      • Solution Architecture Innovation Lab (SAIL) repurposes existing resources, expertise and labs for piloting and prototyping.
      • Members can leverage ICH’s 39 public/private partnership worth $1.5Million in annual dues savings. One ICH membership = many corp memberships.
      • Members also tap ICH’s deep network of influencers, decision makers and appropriators (26,000 strong)
    • Value of ICH & IT-AAC Membership
      • Reduced cost of sales and increased effectiveness of marketing and sales resources
      • Direct access to and collaboration with Senior Government decision makers.
      • Predictable outcomes of major program capture efforts.
      • Direct validation of member capabilities, best practices, unique value proposition
      • Access to existing contract vehicles for predictive, timely award process.
      • Direct participation in agency planning activities.
      “ We have put to practice the AF Solution Assessment Process (ASAP) … with some well documented success. It was developed with Interoperability Clearinghouse (ICH) and provides a structured and measurable IT assessment process with the agility to provide decision-quality assessments ranging from quick-looks to more in-depth capability-focused technology assessments and lightweight business case analysis.” General Mike Peterson, AF CIO
