Acquisition for Federal Government Project Managers presents the federal project/program manager’s role within the government acquisition process and relates their project activities to various acquisition methodologies, in particular performance-based acquisition.
During this course, participants will learn about various acquisition activities, specific to entry-level contracting competencies and performance outcomes, as defined by FAC-P/PM policy and competency model. The course will include how to develop a statement of work, contribute to a source selection plan development, and participate in a contract administration, including contract modifications and terminations. The course identifies how the federal project/program manager works together with other members of the project and acquisition teams. Finally, participants will reinforce the knowledge gained in this course and apply their skills to a series of exercises and case studies.
