Contractor Personnel Accountability

This Online Training (OLT) course provides a broad understanding of contractor personnel accountability policy and processes, as well as the importance of considering accountability requirements as early in operational planning as possible. The course defines contractor personnel accountability and visibility, reviews roles and responsibilities for various government stakeholders, and provides examples of contractor personnel accountability policies from the Office of the Secretary of Defense and various Combatant Commands. The course also provides an introduction to the Synchronized Pre-deployment and Operational Tracker – Enterprise Suite (SPOT-ES), the system for tracking contractor personnel accountability in operational environments. The course framework supports Operational Contract Support (OCS) workforce training requirements and supplements other Defense Acquisition University (DAU) and joint OCS training course requirements.





This is an enterprise-level course targeting Department of Defense acquisition and non-acquisition professionals, especially Contracting Officers, Contract Specialists, Contracting Officer's Representatives, or requirement owners in a contingency or operational setting. The target audience also includes any DoD or industry personnel who may be in a contractor personnel accountability oversight position.
