Impact of the Acquisition Corps Membership Requirement "24 Business-Credit Hours" on the Navy Acquisition Workforce
MetadataShow full item record
This research paper determines if there is a negative impact to the acquisition workforce regarding the 24 business- credit hour requirement for membership into the Acquisition Corps (AC). This paper discusses the history of the defense acquisition workforce in regard to key legislation and why the 24 business-credit hour requirement was enacted. The research also analyzes acquisition workforce survey data from DAWIA level II and III program managers (PM) assigned to NAVAIR and NAVSEA, and previous fiscal year AC board results to determine whether there is an impact to the workforce because of this requirement. Survey and AC board data shows that among the four primary AC membership requirements, the 24 business-credit hour requirement has the most impact contributing to non-selection to the AC. Lastly, this paper determines if the Navy Acquisition Workforce can be exempt from this requirement based on survey data and literature review. The results of this research provided a concise, and achievable remedy to minimize the impact of this requirement by tailoring the formal business credit requirement to each career field and identifying the business education requirement earlier in the officerﾒs DAWIA certification.
