You will develop professional skills for making business decisions and advising other acquisition team members toward success in meeting customers’ needs. Before delving into technical knowledge and contracting procedures, you will first learn about the different Department of Defense (DoD) mission areas along with the types of business alternatives that may be selected for each area. Knowledge management and information systems, as well as recent acquisition initiatives, will be introduced.
Participation in small group simulation exercises will prepare you to provide contracting support within the overarching business relationships of government and industry and the political roles and relationships required.
