Abstract:

The objective of this project is to examine the current state of training of the contracting community on procurement fraud, waste and abuse FWA. This project also examines the need and practical aspects of implementation for a contracting course on procurement FWA into the procurement certification process. This research will look into the benefits of having a course implemented into the certification process as well as the feasibility of doing so. The expected product of this research is to provide a research paper that would enlighten the contracting community with greater insight to promote having a procurement FWA course be part of the certification process. This would mean the incorporation of this course into the curriculum for Federal Acquisition Certification-Contracting and Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act certification. The end goal of this research is to examine an alternative method that can assist in the reduction of FWA and change the contracting profession as a whole on how it deals with FWA. As a result of this project, the contracting community and profession will have a better understanding if implementing a procurement FWA course is something feasible and executable.
