In a time of unprecedented change and disruption, the Department of the Defense has established the Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF) for COVID-19 to assess and rapidly respond to challenges presented by this pandemic.
To kick off the effort, we are collecting information from both government and non-government personnel who are interested in getting involved. All resources and solutions are welcome from industry, academia, venture capital firms, individual contributors and more.
If you're a government employee who wants to get involved, click here.
