            Test and Evaluation

            T&E is a critical part of the DoD acquisition process. T&E professionals develop, optimize, execute and evaluate the testing of system performance, interoperability, reliability, maintainability and cybersecurity. They offer unbiased information to support and inform design improvements, production and fielding decisions.

            A Message from the DAU T&E Center Director

            Please note that changes to certification are coming soon. In support of the September 2020 OSD Acquisition & Sustainment (A&S) memo announcing Back to Basics, DAU is improving its training to better support the needs of the life-long learner. Expect to see leaner certification training and more job focused, just-in-time learning, in the form of credentials. We are working very closely with your Functional Leaders at OSD and your service/agency to meet the training objectives you need to do your job.
