​Of all the challenges the Defense Department faces in buying and building software, the rules that govern how it pays for it are widely-considered one of the biggest. And Defense officials think they have a plan to convince Congress to finally change them.

They would let those programs break free from the "color of money" structures that were originally designed for military hardware, but make little sense in the context of the agile software development model DoD aspires to embrace.

'Tis the season for.....reclamas?  It sure is!  The annual change from summer to fall brings not only cooler weather and football season, but also the OSD Program Objectives Memorandum (POM) / Budget Estimate Submission (BES) and subsequent OSD review of your program's submissions - which can result in your need to write a reclama. So if it's been a while since you have written one, or just want to make sure you are following best practices, take a minute to download the Reclama Reference Card. This card is a 1-page (2-sided) quick reference desk guide that describes what a reclama is, as well as best practices when writing one ("Do's and Dont's").

While the DoD clearly demonstrates success in its warfighting mission, it has been unable to pass a financial audit in accordance with law. It is vital for everyone supporting the DoD to be aware of the FIAR efforts and associated initiatives that will drive future actions for continuous performance improvement and compliance with laws and regulations.

DoD and DAU's first priority is the protection of our people. While DAU will not offer any classes in person until further notice, please do not cancel your class attendance yet. Students will be notified several days in advance of the scheduled start date whether their class will be cancelled or offered online.
