18th Annual Acquisition Research Symposium

Date: May 11, 2021 to May 13, 2021
Location: Online

Every May, the Acquisition Research Program (ARP) hosts this research-focused forum to connect scholars, practitioners, and policymakers. Attendees come from around the world; about half are Naval Postgraduate School faculty and graduate students engaged in acquisition-related research. Senior acquisition officials from the Departments of Defense and the U.S. Navy serve as panel chairs and present their critiques and comments on research papers and priorities.

This year’s keynote speakers are Ms. Stacy Cummings, Acting Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition & Sustainment; Vice Admiral Jon A. Hill, USN, Director of Missile Defense Agency; and Mr. Frederick J. (Jay) Stefany, Acting Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development & Acquisition.
