DAU is pleased to announce the deployment of our twelfth and newest interdisciplinary credential, entitled CSBP 001 Small Business Professional Credential. This new small business-focused credential is intended for not only small business professionals, but for other defense acquisition professionals as well. It provides key, baseline business processes, tools, legislation/policies, and procedures, including funded programs and socioeconomic programs. The expectations of Small Business Professionals throughout the Department are discussed to help provide an understanding of where and how they fit into the Defense acquisition landscape. Students will apply basic and intermediate knowledge of the legislation, policies, acquisition process, and market research techniques required to advise stakeholders effectively, advocate for small business participation in defense acquisitions, and to educate small businesses to do business with the Department of Defense (DoD). An overview of small business decision-making throughout the acquisition process, contributions of the Small Business Professional, the role of the Small Business Administration, small business inreach and outreach strategies, special programs, subcontracting and small business participation, the source selection evaluation process, and post-award issues will be addressed.

With the deployment of CSBP 001, the rapidly expanding portfolio of DAU credentials now includes:
