Business Foundations Credential
Systems Acquisition Contracting
The purpose of this credential is to help prepare acquisition workforce members meet the economic threats to our nation, by providing a more sophisticated understanding of how the broad business markets work and how those pressures influence the behavior of our industry partners when negotiating deals with the government. Students will then learn how to use these concepts during a complex negotiation. As part of this credential, students will view several videos which showcase why understanding business acumen is important, and how one major program used the concepts to form their contracting and negotiations strategy. Students will also be challenged in the role of a CFO making various investment and proposal decisions through the use of a complex business simulation.
