The two major knowledge repositories and access systems developed for DoD by DAU are the AKSS and ACC systems.
The AKSS is the central repository and gateway for acquisition policy and reference materials, and it replaced and improved upon the legacy Defense Acquisition Deskbook system by employing a strategy that leverages valued sources of explicit knowledge developed and constantly maintained by Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), the military services, and agencies.
The ACC provides discretionary practices, whereas the AKSS's major function is to provide mandatory policy and references.
"DAU is moving towards integrating the formal learning of the certification courses and continuous learning courses with the informal learning of AKSS
, the communities of practice, and Web 2.0 initiatives.
There are also links for Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System reporting, DTS, AKSS
, DoD 5000 series acquisition directives, Federal Acquisition Regulation, DoD FAR Supplement, federal grants, the Office of the Secretary of Defense Small Business Innovation Research site, Wide Area Work Flow, and a myriad of other valuable Web sites.
The AT&L Knowledge Sharing System (AKSS) program office is pleased to announce the contribution of two new guides, created to provide members of the AT&L user community with information essential to job support and performance improvement.
The Contract Management Process Guide (CMPG) <https:// akss.dau.mil/lists/guidebook% 20% 20handbooks/c.aspx > is a user-friendly.
AKSS welcomes the submission of new guides, learning tools, performance improvement tools, and handbooks from any of the military services, major commands, and associated agencies.
