Strategic Human Capital Plans for the Federal Acquisition Work Force

Why Gov Projects Never Fail 

In recent years, the federal acquisition work force's size and skills have fallen far behind the surge in spending, contract action rates and procurement complexity. Across government agencies, strategic human capital plans for the acquisition work force highlight strategies to increase headcount and certification.

The Federal Acquisition Work Force: Certified or Qualified? discusses:

  • The 20 percent that will drive 80 percent of the results
  • Measuring achievement against the structure of the organization
  • How assessment, implementation and adoption will facilitate knowledge retention

With more than half of the U.S. federal work force reaching retirement age in less than a decade, the challenges of growing its size and skills will continue to mount. A comprehensive training program will ensure teams work in alignment and can perform aspects of each other's job functions the way integrated project teams do.
