    As the senior procurement executive at NASA, Monica Manning knows how NASA buys and what NASA buys. NASA procurement covers everything from IT to rockets and when you are buying such a wide range of products and services, one procurement model doesn’t fit all of them. Manning will be providing insights into how NASA buys and what trends are driving procurement at the agency. Her portfolio of goods and services equals $19.5 billion in spending through 36,000 contract actions.

    From her presentation, the audience will learn what NASA needs and how it is changing to take advantage of new business models and emerging technologies.
