Acquisition & Contract Management

The University of West Florida has the opportunity to provide the training envisioned by Congress and the Office of Management and Budget via the Online Campus with the Master of Science in Administration – Acquisition and Contract Administration specialization. Additional courses are anticipated as demand under the Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act grows, both in DOD and civilian contractors.

The Federal Office of Management and Budget, in Policy Letter 05-01, indicates that, "The quality and effectiveness of the federal acquisition process depend on the development of a capable and competent workforce. Congress recognized the need for a professional workforce through the passage of the Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act… [and other Acts] which established education, training, and experience requirements for entry and advancement in the acquisition career fields for the Department of Defense (DOD) and civilian agencies respectively."

Policy Letters have also been issued by the Office of Management and Budget that "established policies for skill-based training in contracting and purchasing duties for all executive agencies… [and]…established career management, education, and training requirements for contracting personnel in civilian executive agencies." It is obvious that these federal regulations and policy rulings have great impact in the Northwest Florida region due to the large military presence.
