This day-long, moderated discussion will summarize Access’ philosophy and will invite participating firms to offer suggestions regarding how this work could be defined and effectively purchased from the private sector. Input from this forum may then be used by Delta to help Access develop the operating concept, business model and scope of work for their upcoming procurement of this service.
