Program Manager (PM) Toolkit

Last Updated : 04/19/2017


This toolkit for program managers (PMs) contains a graphic summary of acquisition policies and managerial skills frequently required by DoD program managers. It is a current version of a toolbox that was first developed by Charles F. Schied of the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) Program Management Course (PMC) 92-1. 

The information in the Tool Kit is extracted from DAU course material and is based on DoDD 5000.01 (May 12, 2003), DoDI 5000.02 (December 8, 2008), the Defense Acquisition Guidebook (DAG), CJCSI 6212.01E (December 15, 2008), and CJCSI 3170.01G (March 1, 2009). Material from the DAU Acker Library and Knowledge Repository was also used.

Since the DAU Program Manager’s Toolkit is a compilation of classroom presentation and teaching materials used in a number of different courses at DAU, the charts and tables vary in look and feel. Users are reminded that this summary is a guide only and should not be used as a substitute for official policy guidance. Periodic review of official policy guidance is recommended.
