The VATF is part of of PSC’s Civilian Agencies Council that conducts programs to inform member companies about civilian agencies’ policies and initiatives, and serves as a forum for greater dialogue between PSC and the civilian agencies through regular meetings, timely programs, and various other forums. The VATF serves as the focal point for PSC’s information gathering and collaboration with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). It is the primary arena for member companies to come together to address matters related to VA contracting and interface with senior VA officials, and provides an opportunity to exchange best practices and discuss the full range of issues related to doing business with the VA.
