The CDCA was invited by RADM Lewis to participate in the newly formed SPAWAR Industry Engagement Council (SIEC) at SPAWAR HQ in San Diego on 22 JUN 2015. Red Hoover and Josh Hatter attended on behalf of the CDCA to represent the SSC LANT industrial base.
Below is an excerpt from RADM Lewis announcing the stand-up of the SIEC:
"SPAWAR has a responsibility and desire to engage with industry partners in order to exchange information on a regular and ongoing basis. This engagement helps foster a shared understanding of the Navy's requirements, local industry's capabilities and promotes competition and participation in SPAWAR contracting opportunities. To do this, we are creating the SPAWAR Industry Engagement Council (SIEC).
