Defesne Acquisition University DAU Webcasts

Welcome to DAU Webcasts

The DAU Webcasts sessions goal is to provide the workforce with a platform to share and explore ideas, exercise critical thinking and simply connect with like-minded thinkers and doers across the DoD, industry, academia and the start-up community.

The DAU Webcasts take place on select Wednesday's (except on federal holiday weeks and as otherwise noted) at 12:30-1:30 pm ET on Webex. All sessions are recorded for future viewing.

Adaptive Acquisition Framework Rapid Deployment Training Webcast Series

DAU welcomes you to this webcast series, diving into the details of DoD's new Adaptive Acquisition Framework (AAF). According to USD (A&S) Ellen Lord, the AAF is the most transformational acquisition policy in decades, and provides the workforce six pathways to tailor their acquisition programs. Each webcast focuses on key aspects of the AAF and its family of new and revised DoD 5000 instructions.

Each DAU webcast qualifies for 1.5 CLPs.

How to earn CLPs
Each DAU Webcast qualifies for 1.5 CLPs

How can I get my CLPs reflected on my record?

Since each command is the grantor of CLPs and their requirements differ, we stayed out of "how" to do it. However, one way we suggest is for the viewer to get screenshot of the Webcast session participant list as evidence of attending and submit to their supervisor for approval and granting of the CLPs.
