IT Buyers Training & Support
The ITVMO provides a one-stop-shop for IT acquisition intelligence to inform smarter, faster IT buying decisions. We do this through:
- Generating and increasing the use of IT acquisition knowledge and best practices to include federal procurement data, standard terms and conditions, and technology strategies.
- Fielding, consulting, and supporting agency IT buyers on their IT acquisition strategies and upcoming procurements.
- Acting as the information conduit between the Federal IT vendors and agencies, helping to guide two-way communication and serve as a single point of contact for the federal government.

The Administration has emphasized the need to continuously invest and modernize our acquisition workforce. The acquisition workforce performs a vital role in evolving our Federal IT Marketplace. As such, we recognize the importance of providing opportunities for IT acquisition professionals to maintain a current knowledge base, develop critical thinking abilities, and have an awareness of innovations and leading-edge technologies to achieve successful acquisition outcomes.
The ITVMO has partnered with the Federal Acquisition Institute to leverage their CornerStone onDemand (CSOD) Program to accreditate many of the training webinars and events offered on our Events page and through our domain experts and partners. Depending on the topics, information presented, and duration 1 to 4+ continuing learning points (CLP) may be awarded for participation in one of our training opportunities.

Agency Knowledge Sharing
As a broker of IT acquisition intelligence requests, the ITVMO works across the community and fellow agency IT Buyers to gather and increase the availability of standards, best practices, and guides. To further support the growing increase in agency specific requests, the ITVMO provides an agency knowledge sharing forum on OMB MAX .
On the site you will find instructions for reviewing current questions or information requests, how to submit a response to a current request and how to submit requests on behalf of your agency. Questions are available in individual excel spreadsheets, titled by subject matter so that it is easy to find your areas of knowledge, expertise or even interest.
ITVMO Agency Knowledge Sharing Form
As questions are answered and closed, the file will be marked “Closed” but will still be available for review by current and new acquisition professionals so that if an agency has a similar question in the future, the previously collected information is available for their use as well as the original submitters.
This process allows agency representatives, contracting officers, contracting officer representatives, program managers, and domain experts to come in and review requests and submit information they think would be useful for the requesting agency. It also allows the requesting agency to monitor their open requests for updates from others and engage with those agencies who they think can best support their ongoing requests.
This knowledge forum is expected to continue to grow and we hope you find it useful. Contact Us for more information or log in to the OMB MAX Agency Knowledge Sharing Portal today!
