Public Law 101-510, Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWlA) became effective upon its passage for Fiscal Year 1992. The intent of the legislation is to increase the training and professionalism of the Department of Defense Acquisition Workforce. The DA Wl A outlines specific requirements and qualifications of military personnel who are filling acquisition billets. This thesis will focus on the functions performed by 3044 Marines classified by Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 3044, Contract and Acquisition Specialists. The work performed by 3044 Marines will be compared with the job descriptions of the GS-1 105 (Purchasing Series) and GS-1 102 (Contracting Series) positions. An evaluation will determine if there should be any changes to the 3044 classification, and what other training and entrance requirements could/should be implemented in compliance with the DAW1A initiative; thus ensuring an increase in competency, proficiency and professionalism of the 3044 MOS Marines.
