It is with sincere regret that NDIA must cancel the NDIA Annual Missile Defense Small Business Programs and SBIR/STTR Programs Conference in Huntsville, AL originally scheduled for May 1-2, 2013.
As you are aware, on January 10, 2013 the Department of Defense issued a memorandum detailing actions to be taken to mitigate budget risk in the event Sequestration was actually implemented. That guidance included curtailment of all but mission-critical travel for government employees, staff and leaders. With the implementation of Sequester on March 1, 2013 budgetary pressures have increased. The effects of these government actions and decisions have rendered the conduct of the planned NDIA Annual Missile Defense Small Business Programs and SBIR/STTR Programs Conference no longer possible for this year.
