Defense Acquisition University Fort Belvoir United States
The Defense Acquisition University defines knowledge sharing as combining people, processes, and information technology to improve organizational performance through increased efficiency, effectiveness, and innovation. Over the past few years, DAU has continually reviewed and improved the online knowledge sharing tools it offers to help the acquisition workforce more efficiently locate the information they need to perform their duties. In 2009, DAU began creating and enhancing a set of online knowledge sharing tools to support defense acquisition professionals. It began with ACQuipedia, an online encyclopedia that defines acquisition topics and serves as a gateway to the most relevant policy, formal courses, communities of practice, Ask A Professor questions and answers, best practices, video, and other assets.
