New Product Support Arrangements Credential

Bill Kobren
Your DAU colleagues are pleased to announce the deployment of our 13th multi-disciplinary Life Cycle Logistics credential entitled “CLCL 008 Product Support Arrangements”. Aligned under the Product Support Management Integrated Product Support (IPS) Element, this new defense acquisition credential is now available for student registration!

This exciting new product support credential brings together eight key multi-disciplinary online training (OLT) courses and supporting resources to offer a comprehensive overview of Product Support Arrangements, including Performance Based Logistics, Contracting, Services Acquisition, Earned Value, and Continuous Process Improvement. It is designed to provide learners an overarching understanding of the Life Cycle Logistician’s role in planning and executing product support arrangements, including arrangements for performance-based logistics. An engaging scenario-based capstone exercise and summative examination must be completed to demonstrate the learner’s ability to apply what they have learned. The target audience for this new credential is defense acquisition workforce personnel and their defense industry counterparts from all functional areas, including life cycle logistics, engineering & technical management, business/financial management, cost estimating, contracting, test & evaluation and program management.

With two more product support-focused credentials slated to deploy in the coming months (in addition to two others on the drawing board for FY23 development), we now have 13 IPS Element-based life cycle logistics credentials available for workforce members to take advantage of, including:
