    MTA is NOT a four-letter word! Since the FY16 NDAA, Section 804, was released there has been much consternation about the topic of Middle Tier of Acquisition for Rapid Prototyping and Fielding. Fortunately, we have come a long way in the past few years. Be a part of the discussion as we address the guidance and tools available to you along this pathway. Then hear from our panel of practitioners who have walked this pathway and have some lessons-learned to pass along.

    Description of Series:

    Has it been a while since you earned your advanced/level III certification in Product Support? This webinar series focuses on what's changed from the old DoDI 5000.02, Operation of the Defense Acquisition System, to the new DoDI 5000.02, Operations of the Adaptive Acquisition Framework. Additionally, we'll address the new DoDI 5000.91, Product Support Management for the Adaptive Acquisition Framework. Come to one or come to all nine 90-minute lessons. Each lesson will include 15 minutes of silent work followed by a facilitator who will poll and help summarize the key points. Additionally, each session will include a speaker on applying the topic with an open Q&A period for attendees. Each live session will be worth 1.5 CLPs. A final open office hour event will cap the 2023 version of the Product Support Delta Course.

    Targeted Audience:

    Senior Product Support personnel who have previously completed LOG 350 or LOG 3500 and have earned their Level III or Advance Tier DAWIA certification in life cycle logistics.

    CLPs: 1.5
