Abstract
The objective of this project is to examine the current state of training of the contracting community on procurement fraud, waste and abuse (FW&A). This project also examines the need and practical aspects of implementation for a contracting course on procurement FW&A into the procurement certification process. This research will look into the benefits of having a course implemented into the certification process as well as the feasibility of doing so. The expected product of this research is to provide a research paper that would enlighten the contracting community with greater insight to promote having a procurement FW&A course be part of the certification process. This would mean the incorporation of this course into the curriculum for Federal Acquisition Certification-Contracting and Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act certification. The end goal of this research is to examine an alternative method that can assist in the reduction of FW&A and change the contracting profession as a whole on how it deals with FW&A. As a result of this project, the contracting community and profession will have a better understanding if implementing a procurement FW&A course is something feasible and executable.
