CON 0830 Private Security Contractors is Deployed!!!!

Mr. Bryan Johns
The Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Logistics, in collaboration with the Defense Acquisition University, is proud to announce the deployment of CON 0830 “Private Security Contractors”.

CON 0830 provides students with a broad introduction to Department of Defense private security contractors (PSCs), what functions PSCs and PSC personnel are and are not authorized to perform, and why PSC personnel accountability and visibility is important. It also reviews key PSC policies and guidelines, oversight and personnel accountability requirements and processes, and organization-level responsibilities for the effective and appropriate use and oversight of PSC personnel.

This is the fourth in a series of new online DAU courses pertaining to Operational Contract Support (OCS) and related topics, following the release of CON 0810 “Contractor Personnel Accountability” in 2022 and CON 0820 “Critical Concepts in OCS” and CON 0800 “Planning for and Managing Contractors in Operations” in 2021. Together, these courses will provide students with easy-to-follow self-paced instruction and engaging exercises to help apply new knowledge and skills in the workplace.
