DARPA will host an Information Resources Directorate (IRD), Information Technology Services (ITS) Proposers' Day on Monday, August 1, 2005.

The goals of this Proposers' Day are twofold: 1) To provide participants with an overview of DARPA's mission and how IRD supports the mission; and 2) to interface with potential offerors and solicit industry suggestions with respect to how to best satisfy DARPA's Information Technology Services needs. Attendees are encouraged to explore strong teaming and business relationships, where deemed appropriate, in order to develop competitive responses to an anticipated forthcoming DARPA Information Technology Services RFP, expected to be released on or about 02 September 2005.
