Abstract:

The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Technology asked LMI to conduct a study of the Defense Acquisition University DAU. The study included determination of core functions for DAU, a quantifiable analysis of core curriculum and faculty, and definition and construction of the defense acquisition knowledge base as a relational database of acquisition competencies, complete with keywords and other useful attributes. The study also compared DAU with similar training models from among best practice corporate universities, colleges and universities, and other federal training institutions. The report recommends that DAU should move to become more like a corporate university, but with attributes from the academic model.
