GAP Report - Defense Acquisition Workforce, Actions Needed to Guide Planning Efforts and Improve Workforce Capability

GAO Report to Congressional CommitteeDecember 2015This report examines DOD’s efforts to rebuild its acquisition workforce. We began this work in response to Section 1108 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010, which, as amended, requires DOD to develop a strategy for improving DOD’s civilian workforce, including a plan specifically for DOD’s military and civilian acquisition workforce, on a biennial basis. The legislation also contained a provision for GAO to assess plans that DOD was to submit between 2009 and 2012. DOD issued a strategic workforce plan that included an appendix detailing the plan for the acquisition workforce in April 2010; accordingly, we assessed the plan and issued a report. DOD is currently developing an update to the April 2010 acquisition workforce plan, but it is uncertain when it will be issued. In the absence of an updated plan, we determined the extent to which DOD has (1) increased the size of its acquisition workforce; (2) identified workforce competencies and mitigated any skill gaps; and (3) planned for future workforce needs.
