Staying Organized with Projects

Stay Organized with Project Center

The Acquisition Gateway's Project Center allows you to manage your acquisition research, documents, and timelines. You can collect resources from across the Gateway apps and upload your own documents in one central location to build and share your acquisition package with your team! You can enter in key milestones, assign tasks, upload documents, both inside and outside the Gateway, and collaborate with peers.  And, all of this is private and only available to those you invite into your project. With only a short period of time left in the Fiscal Year, consider using Project Center to help stay organized. Watch this short video or tutorials to learn more.
