The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), in support of the Department of Defense (DoD), is seeking participation from commercial companies or integrators that wish to attend the Department's Spring 2013 ESMF Consortium event and have experience in implementing ITSM/ITIL best practices in their environment. The Agency will allow 100 industry participants in person and unlimited participants via Defense Connect Online (DCO). Each selected company will be allowed no more than two (2) participants to attend the event.  Selection for attendance will be for one-year. This includes all consortium events within the year (both the June 2013 and November 2013 Forum/Consortium).

1.1             
OVERVIEW 


This event is solely for the exchange of information and knowledge. The speakers in the event will benefit from government exchange with the Defense Department as a whole; however presentation at the event does not provide speakers with any competitive advantage or preferential treatment in future acquisitions related to or resulting from the event. Additionally, the government does not support or endorse any company that attends or presents during the event. 

1.2             
PURPOSE 


The Forum/Consortium event is intended to facilitate a learning exchange and public dialogue between industry and the Department of Defense (DoD). Day One and Two will consist of industry and government speakers discussing existing DoD problems within the Service Design domain (e.g., Engineering, Service Level Management, Research and Development, Availability Management, Capacity Management, Information Security Management, IT Service Continuity Management, and Design Coordination).


The ESMF Forum will: 


      Bring together government and process improvement professionals to detail the work that's currently being done throughout the DoD and industry regarding ITSM.


      Highlight industry ITSM implementation best practices and lessons learned.


      Expand the ITSM Community of Practice 


The event is held biannually at Fort Meade, MD on the DISA campus and will also be available via Defense Connect Online (DCO) and video teleconferencing. Government attendees include but are not limited to DISA, each military department, each combatant command, and military agencies. Participants for the most part will be GS-15 and O-6 level with some flag-level speakers and participants. 


2. SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
