DAU today launched two new online training courses of interest to the defense acquisition workforce. The first is ACQ 2550 Services Acquisition Management Tools. This course is based on the seven-step Services Acquisition (SA) process and DoD Instruction 5000.74, Defense Acquisition of Services. The emphasis is on tools available to support the multi-functional team performing a services acquisition as they progress through the three phases and seven steps of the SA Process. This course provides an awareness of management tools and best practices to plan, develop and execute an acquisition, thus providing our warfighters with the most effective and efficient services they need to accomplish their mission. This course also provides an opportunity for experienced acquisition personnel to improve their understanding of the Service Acquisition process, approval levels and reporting requirements. The target audience is service acquisition team members to include functional service managers, contracting officer's representatives, quality assurance reviewers, contracting specialists, and those who are involved in developing and executing performance requirements, business strategies, and assessing contractor-provided services.

The second is STM 0020 Fundamentals of Science and Technology Protection. This new online training course provides S&T managers guidance on how to conduct risk informed protection planning and management of their technology, programs, projects, systems, and technical information to mitigate adversary impacts that threaten to erode DoD technology advantages. The target audience includes members of the defense acquisition workforce who are involved with developing and deploying new technologies.
