Defense Innovation Board

The Defense Innovation Board (DIB) will administer a virtual meeting on Sept. 15 to discuss progress, recommendations and efforts regarding innovation across multiple military aspects.

The meeting will tackle future challenges and various topics prioritized by defense leaders, the Department of Defense (DoD), said in a Federal Register notice published Tuesday.

Topics to be discussed include technical workforce trends, autonomous systems and certifications for software procurement and development under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). 

For example, the board's subcommittee for workforce, behavior and culture made recommendations on hiring technical and digital practitioners in DoD with regard to COVID-19-driven workforce trends. The board will vote on recommendations given by its subcommittees regarding these topics.
