Abstract : The Marine Corps must face the fact that without a completely trained and experienced acquisition workforce, it is unlikely that its limited acquisition resources will achieve an optimum effectiveness. This paper sets forth a proposed career pattern for Marine officers who elect to enter the acquisition workforce. The strategy outlined conforms with the directions of the Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act as well as pertinent Department of Defense directives. Given the current personnel turbulence associated with the on-going reduction of the armed forces some of the recommendations made will not be readily accepted.
