Abstract:

Over the next seven years, more than 50 percent of DoDs acquisition workforce will be eligible for retirement. To replace these highly skilled acquisition professionals, the Department of Defense DoD will need to efficiently and effectively train employees who are entering the contracting profession. In 2003, the Communications Electronics Life Cycle Management Command CE-LCMC established a pilot training program that was intended to accelerate the training and development of contracting interns. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of this program from the perspectives of the 91 participating interns, the Contracting Officers who work with these interns, and the managerssupervisors in the Acquisition Center. Based on the analysis of five surveys, recommendations are offered for the improvement of the CE-LCMC s pilot intern training program.
