About the Category Management Community of PracticeCategory Management

The Department of Defense's implementation of Category Management consists of a structured, data-driven business practice whereby the organization broadly and strategically analyzes and manages common categories of spend with an enterprise-wide focus in order to eliminate redundancies, increase efficiencies, and enhance mission effectiveness.

The Category Management Community of Practice is a forum designed to facilitate the acceleration of the Department's Category Management efforts by:  

  • Serving as the central repository of the DoD’s Category Management materials to provide the DoD Category Management community with the support, resources, and knowledge needed to accomplish their mission
  • Providing a forum in which Category Management professionals can discuss Category Management, share better business practices, ideas, intelligence, and lessons learned
  • Serving as the portal through which access to training and guidance on how to get involved in Category Management may be provided to DoD personnel
  • Serving as a venue to facilitate cross-organization / joint collaboration on Category Management efforts
  • Providing a venue for obtaining expert advice and technical assistance in performing Category Management functions
  • Serving as a venue in which standardized guidance about how Category Management activities are to be conducted across the DoD may be disseminated, including the respective roles and responsibilities of Category Management Team members
  • Serving as the venue through which the principles, merits, and methodologies of Category Management may be communicated through introductory presentations, strategic communications, success stories, and similar promotional material
