Briefings & Events

What to Expect & Highlights at the FY2019 DOD Briefings

From in-depth forums presented by leaders in the federal sector to an informational panel featuring the Engineering Service Chiefs of the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, and U.S. Air Force, the DOD & Federal Agency Program Briefings is SAME’s premiere forward-looking event. Open exclusively to SAME members, the event provides a preview of the coming fiscal-year construction programs of the uniformed services and select federal agencies. 

The SAME Academy of Fellows' three major annual events—Golden Eagle Awards Dinner, Fellows Investiture Ceremony, and the Investiture Luncheon—are also held together as part of SAME Capital Week.  Recipients of the 2018 Golden Eagle awards and the list of those individuals to be inducted into the Academy of Fellows is listed here

DOD Executive Panel: Meet the Chiefs

Hon Lucian Niemeyer, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Installations, Environment and Energy (ASD IE&E)

Hon Lucian Niemeyer, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Installations, Environment and Energy (ASD IE&E), will brief the membership on the status of the two-part policy that directs the services to employ project charters. This is the project requirement that resulted from the CEO Round Table in November at the SAME Small Business Conference.

The first part is pre-award for internal government participants and is being developed by the ASD’s office. The second part will be a charter “Annex” that is adopted post-award and consists of templates that address major project delivery issues that cause project delays or cost overruns (e.g. escalation paths, change order management, etc...). SAME is assisting by gathering input from industry for the Annex.
