Improving Defense Acquisition – Section 809 Panel Workforce Town Hall
The Section 809 Panel is in the process of examining statutory and regulatory reform in order to foster a culture of authority and accountability in the acquisition process. The Panel is evaluating how DoD recruits, retains, develops, and manages its acquisition workforce. The Panel is focusing on how well Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA) is working, how well training dollars such as the Defense Acquisition Development Fund (DAWDF) are utilized, and how well talent management efforts like training and mentoring are impacting acquisition outcomes.
The Panel is also interested in finding out what is important to acquisition workforce members on the front line. Now is YOUR chance. Join the Section 809 Panel for a workforce town hall in the Howell Auditorium at DAU Fort Belvoir VA where you can provide the panel with real time feedback.
