In coordination with the Navy Junior Officer Council (NJOC), this project examines implementation of a pilot program that U.S. Navy Supply Corps Junior Officers (JOs) attend the distance learning Master of Science in Contract Management (MSCM) program as part of their two-year Navy Acquisition Contracting Officer internship. Attending the MSCM program provides JOs with the opportunity to meet two crucial career milestones, earning both a master’s degree and achieving a Defense Acquisition University (DAU) certification in contracting. JO attendance in the MSCM program would be in place of attending the DAU residency courses necessary for the current DAU Level I/II contracting certification.
