This paper presents IDAs participation in a review, conducted during FY 2004, of systems engineering-related education and training for the acquisition workforce. The purpose of the review was to determine ways that the education and training could be revised or updated to achieve better implementation of systems engineering on acquisition programs. Most of the work centered on the courses offered within the Systems Engineering SE career path of the Systems Planning, Research, Development and Engineering SPRDE career field. This paper begins with background leading up to the review, summarizing recent changes to DoD acquisition policy and SE policy. The remainder of the paper documents the implementation of the review, highlighting IDAs participation. It includes proposed revisions and updates to the SPRDESE position category description, certification requirements, and other education and training-related resources as well as guidance regarding certification course content.
