As described in this article, the USD (AT&L) IACP has a tailored focus for each respective acquisition career field. Eligible international acquisition personnel may elect to participate in both programs.
Whereas the previous acquisition corps had been defined by position (i.e., military 0-4 and above; civilian GS-14 and above), DoD now required that prospective members of the defense acquisition corps first meet Level II education, training, and experience requirements in an acquisition career field. Now, critical acquisition positions could only be filled by acquisition corps members.
The development of acquisition workforce members is enhanced by the use of career field development teams consisting of senior leadership from within each acquisition career field. Using the published acquisition career path models as a guide, the acquisition development teams provide each individual with developmental guidance that vectors them on paths of progression and opportunity in the acquisition workforce.
In 2007, the Federal Acquisition Institute was tasked with raising the visibility of the acquisition career field, specifically that of the contracting professional, on behalf of the entire federal government.
RELATED ARTICLE: International Acquisition Career Field Competencies
The Defense Acquisition University (DAU) Catalog provides acquisition workforce members with a listing of the core certification standards by acquisition career field and level, as well as Core Plus knowledge and skills that are delivered through coursework that targets functions or tasks directly related to specific types of job assignments.
Each career field maps the array of competencies and performance criteria required to be successful in the acquisition career field. The collective goal is to create a common language that will describe workforce capabilities and the criteria required for superior job performance.
This includes the authority to appoint student interns and veteran candidates for acquisition positions in the critical acquisition career fields of business and technical management or technical management support, thereby increasing managers' ability to identify and hire the best candidate.
At the direction of Defense Acquisition University President James Woolsey, the Defense ARJ team leveraged these existing reviews and established a Web site, which assigned book reviews to the entire defense acquisition community, as well as to specific categories based on acquisition career fields. Additional book reviews were identified and solicited from leaders in the acquisition workforce from government, academia, and industry.
This same pattern is repeated in the other acquisition career fields.
The second category contains readings that broaden our vision of acquisition career fields, broadly divided in three domains: Management (e.g., program management), Corporate (e.g., business and auditing), and Technical (e.g., engineering).
Under the auspices of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and in support of Better Buying Power, selected members of the DAU faculty in 2013 began working with subject-matter experts in the acquisition community to develop qualification standards for workforce members in all acquisition career fields under the Acquisition Workforce Qualification Initiative (AWQI).
