The IACP was formally disestablished as part of the Office of SecDef (Acquisition & Sustainment) (A&S) Defense Acquisition Workforce (DAW)"Back to Basics" (BtB) training initiative in February 2022. The IACP was redesignated as a BtB "Knowledge Area" at that time. DSMC-I's blog entitled "DoD International Acquisition and Security Cooperation Workforce Training Update" of March 22, 2022 provides further details regarding DAW BtB implementation focusing specifically on the Int'l Acquisition Knowledge Area.
The IACP was initially established by Mr. Ken Krieg, the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology and Logistics) at the time, as a DAWIA International Acquisition Career Path (IACP) by a memo he signed June 22, 2007. The initial IACP effort focused on establishment of a Program Management (PM) career field-based IACP that required completion of several DAU international program management courses. USD(AT&L) Frank Kendall signed a memo expanding the IACP to all relevant DAWIA career fields in September 2014. The Office of SecDef (Acquisition and Sustainment)/Industrial Base Policy/International Cooperation (A&S/IBP/IC) staff is currently working with the DAU/DSMC-International staff to begin planning and implementing various aspects of Int'l Acquisition Knowledge Area.
