NRO Industry Advisory Working Group

USGIF established its NRO Industry Advisory Working Group (NRO IAWG) to bring together industry professionals from hardware, software, system integrator, and SETA/FFRDC organizations in order to help the government achieve its Agency transformation objectives. Specifically this working group is formed to identify business models that will support government and industry objectives as well as to identify potential pitfalls and corresponding courses of action.

The NRO IAWG meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 3:00 p.m. at USGIF Headquarters. For more information about this working group, please email
