“The defense department and other government agencies need organizations like the ISOA to enable unity of purpose and promote high standards of conduct and product across the commercial support sector, and to provide responsive and effective points of communication between our total force contractor community and the department of defense.”

Gary J. Motsek

Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense – Program Support, June 7, 2017

The ISOA Annual Summit is the premier annual event of the international stability operations industry. Don’t miss this important opportunity to join hundreds of practitioners in government, the military, the private sector, and academia for two days of key networking and exploration of The Stability Operations Marketplace: Trends in Operational Contracting.

This year we will address policy, as well as operational issues including: Contract Procurement with Air Force Contracting Command, SOCOM, and other contracting commands; Bid Protests and LPTA; Competition Strategies for Small Businesses; International Responses to Emerging and Existing Global Threats; Industry Standards and Compliance; and many more!

ISOA is a global partnership of private sector and nongovernmental organizations providing critical services in fragile environments worldwide. Our mission is fourfold: 1) To promote ethical standards in operational contractor support through the ISOA Code of Conduct. 2) To build key relationships within and across sectors in the stability operations space by identifying common interests. 3) To advocate for the effective utilization of private sector services in fragile environments. 4) To facilitate business development opportunities for our members by leveraging the exclusive ISOA network.
