DAU ACQUISITION TRAINING SYMPOSIUM- APRIL 8, 2014
The Defense Acquisition University (DAU) will host a low cost, one-day training symposium on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at its Fort Belvoir campus (Scott Hall).  The symposium is presented by the DAU Alumni Association (DAUAA) on behalf of DAU.  The Theme is “Achieving Better Acquisition Outcomes in Austere Times – Improved Processes, Reduced Overhead.”  The forum will provide an opportunity for both government and industry acquisition professionals to receive training and perspectives on implementing the Better Buying Power (BBP) 2.0 initiatives of the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics.  Through a series of plenary and classroom training sessions, attendees will learn about such topics as: Driving Unnecessary Costs out of the Services Acquisition Process, Agile Program Management, a DoD 5000 Series Update, The Future of Defense Acquisition, Tacit Learning – Finding Proven Practices and Lessons Learned  for Acquisition Managers, Maintaining Readiness While Enabling Cost Reduction Through Infrastructure Sizing and Shaping, and Summary Reports of Winning Papers of the Hirsch Research Paper Competition.  In a period of fiscal challenges and technological opportunities, the sessions will focus on learning hard skills – training in the latest USD(AT&L) policy, practices and techniques that attendees can take back to the workplace and apply.  The low-cost training forum will take place from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and be fed via VTC to numerous DAU regional campuses and sites.  The forum provides four Continuous Learning Points (CLP) for continued DoD acquisition certification.
