Joint IT & Software Cost Forum 2022

About This Forum

Have you ever wanted to hear other program manager's experiences delivering applications using agile? Find out how cost analysis could help you manage an IT program? Build a network of peers across program management, technology, and cost analysis? Understand the cost and resource benefits and limitations of new, emerging development paradigms? If so, the Joint IT and Software Cost Forum is for you!

This joint forum is co-chaired and organized by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the Air Force Cost Analysis Agency (AFCAA), the Missile Defense Agency’s (MDA) Cost Estimating Directorate, the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Cost & Economics), and the U.S. Census Bureau’s Office of Program Performance and Stakeholder Integration (PPSI).

Our forum’s mission is to build coalitions across Federal agencies, academia, and industry by bringing together program managers, technologists, and cost analysts by sharing successes, challenges, and best practices to solve information technology, software, and cost estimating challenges.
