Abstract
The purpose of this Joint Applied Project was to investigate and provide appropriate recommendations to the Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) on how to most effectively train first-time military acquisition professionals in the Defense Acquisition System. This research was conducted with the support and assistance of MARCORSYSCOM's Workforce Management and Development office, as well as support from individuals representing both the Naval Postgraduate School and Florida Institute of Technology. The goal of this project was twofold. First, the research was aimed at conducting cost-benefit and gap analyses of the various training opportunities available to current and former acquisition professionals. Data collection for this was conducted primarily though a survey sent to current and former military officers filling acquisition billets. After determining the course providing the command the best value, the research focused on identifying opportunities to address the residual gaps in training. Recommendations to address residual gaps were then identified and documented for the future use of MARCORSYSCOM.
