Greetings!     (01)

You and your colleagues are invited to Collaborative Expedition workshop 
#56 "Towards a Transparent Acquisition Marketplace for Increased Agility 
with Open Technology Development".   The Department of Defense report on 
Open Technology Development (OTD) has put the spotlight on the need for 
more agile information technology, including the acquisition of open 
source software.  The workshop will provide a forum for discussion of how 
the acquisition process, measurements of value, and marketplace will need 
to adapt if more agile OTD solutions are to be readily procured.  The role 
of Communities of Practice in advancing this capacity and related 
distributed innovations will be also highlighted.  The workshop will be 
held on Tuesday, December 12, 2006,  from 8:30 - 4:30 PM at the National 
Science Foundation, Ballston, VA.  There is no fee.       (02)

Please RSVP to Susan.Turnbull@xxxxxxx if you plan to attend in person or 
remotely by teleconference.     (03)
