A quick DAU LOG Blog post to let members of the defense acquisition workforce know that DAU deployed two new multi-disciplinary courses this past week:
- RQM 1100 Core Concepts for Requirements Management. This Online Training (OLT) course allows professionals to study the role of both the requirements manager and requirements management within the Department of Defense (DoD) “Big A” acquisition construct. It examines the capabilities identification and requirements development processes from an end-to-end perspective, highlighting the intersection between the DoD “Big A” decision support systems of acquisition, resourcing, and requirements. Target attendees include those significantly involved with DoD capability identification and requirements development to include study leadership; planning, writing, and adjudicating comments; and facilitating the development and coordination of requirements documents within organizations. This course is the joint standard for certification of the Level A Requirements Management Certification Training requirement for any member of the Department of Defense involved in the development of requirements for a major defense acquisition program (MDAP).
- CON 0330 Contract Format and Structure for DoD e-Business. In this Online Training (OLT) course, effective structuring of contracts is more important than ever. This is due to the increased automation of the contracting process and centralization of bill paying through the Defense Finance and Accounting Service; a loss of institutional knowledge among the DoD procurement workforce; and requirements for proper valuation and tracking of equipment. The target attendees for this course includes those who require an understanding of the Uniform Contract Format. It is particularly useful for those in the Contracting career field/functional area personnel.
