Our DAU Director of Academic Programs has deployed a new “Defense Acquisition Workforce Position Category Descriptions (PCD)” repository for defense acquisition workforce functional areas including life cycle logistics.

For those who may not already be familiar with these documents, as the website indicates, “Position Category Descriptions (PCDs) are intended to assist in determining which functional area to assign to a Defense Acquisition position per Title 10 Sec. 1721. If 50% or more of the duties and responsibilities of the position match the listed “General Acquisition-Related Duties” described AND the preponderance of those duties match the listed “Functional Area Specific Duties” described in a specific PCD, the position should be assigned to the relevant position category/functional area. All acquisition positions require management attention with respect to certification requirements and individual development.”
