New Business Foundations Credential Now Available

Encourage DAU LOG Blog readers to check out a recent blog post from our DAU Contracting teammates entitled “CCON 002, Business Foundations Credential has Deployed!” announcing the deployment of the newest Defense Acquisition Credential.

The purpose of the new CCON 002 Business Foundations Credential is to help prepare acquisition workforce members meet the economic threats to our nation, by providing a more sophisticated understanding of how the broad business markets work and how those pressures influence the behavior of our industry partners when negotiating deals with the government. Students will then learn how to use these concepts during a complex negotiation.

The deployment of the new CCON 002 brings to 24 the growing number of multi-disciplinary credentials now available from DAU, which now include:

  • CACQ 001 Services Acquisition for non-Acquisition Professional Team Members
  • CACQ 002 Services Acquisition for Acquisition Professional Team Members
  • CACQ 004 Introduction to Risk, Issue, and Opportunity Management Credential
  • CACQ 006 Acquisition Law & Policy
