About the Virtual Acquisition Office™ (VAO)

The Virtual Acquisition Office™ is more than a web site: It is a robust all-inclusive service designed to bring you the “latest and greatest” in acquisition developments and trends and translate that knowledge into news, publications, tools, training, and events that help government agencies learn and execute most efficiently and effectively.

The VAO service is a subscription-based, fixed-price service offered solely to federal agencies. It includes:
  • News. The fastest, most reliable way to stay current on the latest legislation, policies, regulations, protests, and trends affecting federal acquisition professionals.
  • Publications. Our range of publications provide greater depth and insight into acquisition developments, processes, and promising practices.
  • Inquiry Service. Our experienced acquisition practitioners and researchers are available to answer your agency’s questions.
  • Webinars. Webinars provide an opportunity for real-time learning while earning continuous learning points, without ever leaving your office.
  • Tools. We translate the latest regulations, policies, and best practices into checklists, templates, Q&As, and online learning modules that are updated frequently to reflect current regulations and successful practices.
  • COR Toolkit. CORs can find online learning modules, quick reference guides, templates, checklists, and FAQs specifically targeted to their unique role in the acquisition process.
