Join us for the USPTO IT Vendor Expo, the only chance to get in front of USPTO employees at this facility this year! Companies specializing in IT Security products and services are invited to exhibit at this one day event.
Attendee Audience: The event host, the IT Security Management at USPTO, and FBC works together to promote the IT Vendor Expo to all personnel. The USPTO promotes the event internally through their "USPTO Weekly" newsletter and via an electronic flyer. The 2019 event brought in over 250 attendees from throughout the agency.
USPTO MISSION AND ORGANIZATION (from the USPTO Strategic Plan):
The United States is a global leader in promoting laws and policies that foster innovation and Intellectual Property (IP) rights – and in encouraging economic investment in the arts, innovation and creativity. The USPTO Vision is to "Lead the Nation and the World in Intellectual Property Protection and Policy." The USPTO Mission is to "foster innovation, competitiveness and economic growth, domestically and abroad, by delivering high quality and timely examination of patent and trademark applications, guiding domestic and international intellectual property policy, and delivering intellectual property information and education worldwide, with a highly skilled, diverse workforce."
In the USPTO Strategic Plan, the Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office outlines a vision and establishes goals, which recognize the importance of intellectual property protection in a global and technology-based economy. In concert with the USPTO Strategic Plan, this Strategic IT Plan documents the role that information technology plays in achieving the USPTO mission, vision and goals. The SITP also defines a vision for USPTO information technology that will greatly enhance the quality of service to its customers and guide the Office of the Chief Information Officer.
The USPTO is organized to support its constitutionally mandated business functions, with a Commissioner for Patents, a Commissioner for Trademarks, Advisory Committees and Appeals Boards that report directly to the Director. The other offices that report directly to the Director provide support for enterprise-wide management functions. One of those is the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO), which by law oversees all information technology used by the USPTO.
