DC Buys is a unique opportunity for the local and regional vendor community to market their goods and services directly to the program managers and procurement personnel who ultimately make purchasing decisions on behalf of District agencies. Invited agency representatives will staff tables where information about their specific needs and upcoming solicitations will be made available to vendors. Throughout the day, we will also host concurrent sessions to share with vendors how to do business with agencies under OCP’s authority, independent agencies, and other programs and initiatives that are useful to the vendor community.
