Abstract:

Public Law 101-510, Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act DAWIA 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 DAWIA outlines specific requirements and qualifications for various specialties within the General Series GS workforce and states requirements for the qualifications of military personnel who are filling acquisition billets. This thesis will focus on the functions performed by 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 Contracting Series positions. An evaluation will determine if there should be any changes to the 3044 classification, and what other training and entrance requirements couldshould be implemented in compliance with the DAWIA initiative thus ensuring an increase in competency, proficiency and professionalism of the 3044 MOS Marines....DAWIA, Public Law 101-510, Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act.
