Workforce Development Award
Applications for the 2011 Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology & Logistics (USD(AT&L)) Workforce Development Award are now being accepted.
The USD(AT&L) Workforce Development Award has been established to help promote the objectives of the USD(AT&L)’s goal of a high quality, agile, and ethical Defense Acquisition Workforce. This program recognizes Department of Defense (DoD) AT&L organizations that have made exemplary contributions to the career-long development of their workforces.
All Component and DoD AT&L organizations, except the Defense Acquisition University (DAU), are eligible to compete for the 2011 USD(AT&L) Workforce Development Award. There is no application fee associated with this award program.
In order to apply, each organization’s point of contact (POC) must complete the award application form and submit it, via e-mail, to the award coordinator at [email protected]. The application form, instructions, and additional information may be found at the award website www.dau.mil/acqawards/development). Please note that each submission must include an endorsement from a flag officer/SES in the organization’s chain of command.
Each application will be evaluated in one of two categories as determined by the organization’s size (i.e., fewer than 500 employees and 500 or more employees). Selected organizations will be recognized as Gold, Silver, or Bronze award winners. The application procedures are the same for both categories. Applications must be received by August 1, 2011, in order to be considered.
The 2011 USD(AT&L) Workforce Development Awards will be presented in November 2011 in conjunction with the Program Executive Officers’/Systems Command (PEO/SYSCOM) Commanders’ Conference at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Award winners will receive plaques and recognition on the USD(AT&L) and DAU web pages.
Please address any questions to the award coordinator at 703-805-4570 or [email protected].
