Overview of NDAA Section 846s ECommerce Marketplace

Thursday, March 22, 2018
10:30 a.m. Central, 11:30 a.m. Eastern


Amazon has targeted the federal government market as their next major opportunity for growth.  Over the last two years Amazon has been lobbying congress to consolidate the existing internet portals and contracts with a government wide Amazon Ecommerce Portal.  The House and Senate have passed a bill that calls for a phased in plan with industry input that could make this a reality.  In this webinar, Paul Miller and Mike Tucker will recap the status of this bill and NOPA’s efforts to ensure that the interests of Independent Dealers are protected.
