ACT-IAC’s operating principles require that the organization and all of its activities be conducted in a manner that is objective, vendor-neutral and transparent. In accordance with these principles, the general assumption governing ACT-IAC activities is that they shall be open to the press unless an exception is specifically made in advance or, in some cases, on-the-spot due to a speaker request, or other unforeseen circumstances.
Plenary & Workshop Sessions:
Conference plenary sessions and workshops shall be open to the press and on the record.
CXO Breakfast Session:
The objective of this event is to provide a collaborative forum where government and industry executives may engage in a frank and candid exchange on issues of topical importance to the government information technology community. Accordingly, a “non-attribution” policy will apply. Reporters and attendees are asked to not attribute any statement to any individual speaker in any recordings, or document or Twitter for dissemination beyond the session.
At the conclusion of the breakfast, reporters or attendees may ask speakers and participants subsequently to ‘go on the record’ to discuss comments made or positions taken. If the individual consents, reporters or attendees may quote or otherwise report any such statements made outside the session. However, if the participant does not consent, we ask all reporters and attendees to honor the non-attribution policy to preserve the event as a completely open forum for meaningful exchange between government and industry.
