Introduction 



Richard A. Black Edward Hirsch 

BG, USA BG, USA (Ret) 

Commandant Provost and Deputy 


T his year the Defense Systems Management Col- 
lege (DSMC) begins its second quarter century 
as the world's premier school for acquisition 
and systems management education. It is DSMCs 
mission to promote and support the adoption 
and practice of sound systems management 
principies by the acquisition workforce. The College ac- 
complishes this through education and training, re- 
search, consulting, and information dissemination. 

The College was established in 1971 by the late David 
Packard for "the specific purpose of making substan- 
tial improvement in the capability and effectiveness of 
managers for the important development and pro- 
duction programs of the Department of Defense." He 
recognized that the acquisition workforce needed "a 
College of high distinction where the best of modern 
management practices are taught..." and "a center of 
research for the improvement of managerial prac- 
tices." As a result, DSMC responded to this direction 
with the establishment of the 20-week Program Man- 
agement Course, which formed the nucleus of a grow- 
ing academic program. 

Opposite page: Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition Reform, Mrs. 
Colleen Preston, passes the Defense Systems Management College colors to BG 
Richard A. Black, USA, in a Change of Command Ceremony held at DSMC's main 
Fort Belvoir campus on March 28, 1996. 


Secretary of Defense William J. Perry speaks at DSMC. 



In 1971 DSMC had only 60 students, but began to es- 
tablish itself as a College of high distinction and the 
academy of management for all four Services. As the 
pace of technological change increased through the 
'70s, the nation reaiized that defense acquisition 
needed to be streamlined. Major initiatives such as 
the President's Blue Ribbon Commission on Defense 
Management and the Goidwater-Nichols DoD Reorga- 
nization Act were reflected in the growth of DSMC. In 
1986 Congress recognized the key role of acquisition 
education and made attendance at the Program Man- 
agement Course mandatory for future program man- 
agers. Today, the College graduates over 9,000 
students per year in more than 30 courses, ranging in 
iength from 3 days to 14 weeks. 

The pace of acquisition reform has accelerated in the 
decade of the '90s. The Federal Acquisition Streamlin- 
ing Act, the Federal Acquisition Reform Act, and the 
new DoD 5000 documents are just a few of the major 
changes that have affected the acquisition workforce 
and made tremendous demands for continuing edu- 
cation and regular updates for all acquisition profes- 
sionals. Currently, DSMC is responding to this need 
with a combination of core integrated courses, spe- 
cialized courses, consulting, and online information

dissemination. The major integrated courses include 
the Fundamentals of Systems Acquisition Manage- 
ment Course (FSAMC), Intermediate Systems Acquisi- 
tion Course (ISAC), and the Advanced Program 
Management Course (APMC). 

The combination of Level I functional courses and 
FSAMC provides the new members of the workforce 
with the basic body of knowledge they need to de- 
velop and grow in the acquisition workforce. After 
gaining knowledge and experience in their functional 
field, the typical workforce member will attend ISAC. 
This is the flagship course for Integrated Product 
Teams (IPT) or Integrated Product and Process Devel- 
opment Teams (IPPD). In ISAC, students learn enough 
about the other functional disciplines to be effective 
members of an IPT or IPPD. Following ISAC, addi- 
tional functional courses, and several more years of 
work experience, acquisition professionals who wish

to reach Level III in the program management career 
field attend APMC. Graduates are capable of filling pri- 
mary positions on program management staffs, oper- 
ating as division chiefs in program offices, and acting 
as team leaders of IPTs/IPPDs.

diploma to the Class President, Mr. Douglas Newberry (center), a member of the 
U.S. Navy Senior Executive Service. On hand to award the oversize diploma was BG

These three integrated courses combine with the 
other Defense Acquisition University (DAU) offerings 
to provide the primary means of education for the ac- 
quisition workforce. However, these courses alone 
cannot keep everyone current with the yearly changes 
in policy and practice or the changes in acquisition 
caused by rapid growth in technology. The four Re- 
gional Centers at St. Louis, Boston, Los Angeles, and 
Huntsville offer opportunities for courses outside the 
Washington, DC area. In addition, DSMC is developing 
a variety of distance learning and continuing educa- 
tion offerings that will allow the entire workforce to 
stay current in this rapidly changing environment. 

In addition to education, the original charter gave 
DSMC research, consulting, and information dis- 
semination missions. The College publishes numer- 
ous scholarly research products and hosts a 
biennial national research symposium. The DSMC 


For their important contributions as members of the 5000 Series Acquisition 
Working Group, over 20 members of the Acquisition Working Group received 
Letters of Appreciation. Among them was Professor Chuck Cochrane, Faculty 
Department Chair, Acquisition Policy Department, DSMC. From left: DSMC

Press publishes and disseminates information 
through books, guidebooks, technical reports, and 
program management fact sheets. The bimonthly 
Program Manager magazine and the DAU-refereed 
journal. Acquisition Review Quarteriy, provide oppor- 
tunities for key policy makers to speak directly to 
the community. Electronic information is provided 
via the DSMC Home Page (http:/www.dsmc.dsm.mil). 
This web site offers updates on acquisition policy, the 
Program Manager's Notebook, and online access to the 
experts on the DSMC faculty. It can be used to find in- 
formation on current research into critical acquisition 
issues and has a section for lessons learned from re- 
cent program results. 

The DoD policy makers have made major changes in 
streamlining and reforming the acquisition of defense 
systems. Much of the burden now falls to the educa- 
tional institutions and to those in the workforce that 
must implement the reforms that have been made. 
The DSMC staff and faculty are committed to main- 
taining the currency of the acquisition workforce so 
they can acquire defense systems faster, better, and 
for less money. We will continue to adapt our courses 
and methods of delivery to satisfy the needs of our 
customers through on-site instruction, continuing edu- 
cation, and distance learning so the acquisition work- 
force can help our nation meet its defense objectives.

School of Prosram Manasement 


T he School of Program Management plans, 

schedules, and conducts program management 
courses and provides executive continuing edu- 
cation to support the acquisition management 
workforce. Courses include the core courses 
for Level I, II, and III acquisition professionals, 
assignment-specific international courses, and execu- 
tive courses. 

The School sponsors the Defense Acquisition 
University's integrative core courses: the 2-week ACQ 
101, Fundamentals of Systems Acquisition Manage- 
ment Course (FSAMC); the 4-week ACQ 201, Interme- 
diate Systems Acquisition Course (ISAC); and the 
14-week PMT 302, Advanced Program Management 
Course (APMC). These courses are all integrated 
courses involving the various interrelated disciplines 
of program management. Each course builds on the 
prior (prerequisite) course to improve the professionai- 
ism of the acquisition workforce throughout an acqui- 
sition or program management career. We designed 
the courses to enable the student to develop the lev- 
els of competence desired by the Acquisition Manage- 
ment Functional Board. 

Graduates of the former Program Management 
Course (PMC) or the current APMC who are selected 
for key program management positions involving ei- 
ther Acquisition Category (ACAT) I, II, or III return to 
DSMC for job-specific enroute courses designed to im- 
prove the effectiveness of the newly assigned pro- 
gram managers. The 2-week PMT 305, Program 
Managers Survival Course (PMSC) focuses on the com- 
petency needs of the newly selected ACAT III program 
manager or deputy program manager. The 4-week 
PMT 303, Executive Program Managers Course 
(EPMC) is designed to meet the learning and perfor- 
mance needs of newly selected program executive of- 
ficers and ACAT I and II program managers/deputy 
program managers. 

The College provides continuing education in pro- 
gram management by open registration to prior 
graduates for the APMC electives, by the 2-week Ex- 
ecutive Refresher Course (for 0-6, GM-15 graduates of

the former 20-week PMC or the current 14-week 
APMC), by shorter acquisition seminars, and by other 
educational materials available for self-study. 

The 3-week Executive Management Course provides 
education in acquisition management for military 0-6 
or GM-15 level executives who have not completed 
the ISAC, PMC, or APMC. This course combines a cur- 
rent acquisition policy curriculum with an executive 
learning needs focus. 

The Systems Acquisition Management for General/ 
Flag Officers Course provides flag officers and senior 
executive-level civilians a 1-week, senior-level over- 
view of acquisition management. This course provides 
an introduction for individuals who must interface 
with the acquisition business community, and a cur- 
rent policy and best practices update for senior acqui- 
sition corps leaders. 

International program management courses provide 
education for professionals who are or will be in- 
volved in international acquisition programs. All inter- 
national courses are 1 week in duration, and are 
assignment-specific courses. The Multinational Pro- 
gram Management Course (MPMC) (PMT 202) is the 
introduction to and overview of cooperative develop- 
ment, production, and support. Once each year, nor- 
mally in Europe, the College conducts the MPMC 
under the International Defense Educational Arrange- 
ment with the United Kingdom, Germany, and France. 



9 



The International Security and Technology Transfer/ 
Control Course (PMT 203) focuses on information and 
technology transfer/control issues that acquisition 
personnel must consider with international programs. 
The Advanced International Management Workshop 
(PMT 304) is a course focused on the nature, process, 
procedures, and issues associated with the prepara- 
tion and negotiation of international cooperative ac- 
quisition agreements, normally referred to as 
Memoranda of Understanding or Agreement. 

The College updates its program management cur- 
riculum continually, with input from faculty, current 
and past students, acquisition managers, supervisors 
of graduates, acquisition career management boards, 
and functional area advisory boards. The update pro- 
cess, based on multiple input and views on priorities, 
facilitates continuous course update, reflecting the 
evolution of the defense systems acquisition manage- 
ment arena. The highly experienced faculty helps stu- 
dents consider best practices, current policy, and 
different alternatives in the context of the rapidly 
changing world. Self-directed learning support in the 
APMC, PMSC, and EPMC allows students to tailor their 
individual learning needs in areas beyond the core 


curriculum. The structured program identifies and co- 
ordinates common interests, helps students contact 
faculty in key interest areas, and enables students to 
take full advantage of learning resources on and off 
campus. Students design their own supplementary 
learning program to fulfill their individual learning ob- 
jectives from on-campus electives, the Learning Re- 
source Center, library materials and on-line databases, 
and the many unique acquisition-related personnel 
and institutions in the Washington, DC area. 

EXECUTIVE CONTINUOUS EDUCATION 
FOR LEADERS (EXCEL) PROGRAM 
The EXCEL Program provides executive participants in 
the systems acquisition community with a process 
and program that facilitate individually tailored, 
career-long learning experiences using resources 
brokered through DSMC. Normally, beginning with 
the EPMC for major program managers, the EXCEL 
program assists executive learners via an "Assess/ 
Plan/Do" process to enhance the knowledge and 
skills needed for their current or anticipated job 
assignments. 


EXECUTIVE-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM 


In response to a mandate by the Congress, Office of the Secretary of 
Defense (OSD), and the Services to increase acquisition workforce 
qualifications, DSMC established the Executive-In-Residence (EIR) pro- 
gram in 1991. Emphasizing the integrative nature of program man- 
agement, the EIR program added four senior-level, multifunctional 
program managers to the College's existing faculty of highly qualified 
functional managers. 

These EIRs provide a unique resource of talent to teach and mentor 
faculty and students, conduct advanced research, ajnd provide execu- 
tive consulting to the College." Not only ‘1wre they pWticularly instru- 
mental in the design and conduct of the new Executive Program 
Managers Course, but their experience is alsa Applied across the spec- 
trum of DSMCs integrative courses by counseling, facilitating, and ad- 
vising students on the complex interrelationships in program 
management and by helping them make the connection of theory to 
practice. In addition, they provide executive-level consulting to nu- 
merous program offices, various OSD working groups and policy 
groups, and serve on the DoD Acquisition Management Functional 
Board.

T he Academic Programs Division (APD) serves as 
the formal interface with the staffs of the De- 
fense Acquisition University (DAU), Service 
Directors of Acquisition Management, and the 
Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition and 
Technology) within the Office of the Secretary of 
Defense (OSD). Its responsibilities include developing 
and coordinating College academic policy, plans, and 
procedural directives. To identify and meet future re- 
quirements, the APD is developing methods to multi- 
ply the number of students that can be supported. 
Serving as the customer interface for acquisition 
course requirements, the APD also determines cus- 
tomer education needs and assesses how well DSMC 
is achieving customer satisfaction. 

The APD consists of the Academic Requirements De- 
partment, the Office of the Registrar, and the College's 
four Regional Centers. 

ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS 
DEPARTMENT 

The Academic Requirements Department establishes 
program and budget priorities; positions the College 
for anticipating changing needs of the future acquisi- 
tion workforce, including marketing and business de- 
velopment of College products and services; projects 
student throughput; develops the College calendar for

Resional Centers 


I he Regional Centers are a vital part of DSMC 
and are located at major acquisition manage- 
ment centers. Nearly half of all DSMC students 
attend the Regional offerings. The Regional 
Centers offer several short courses, which are 
listed below: 


-f Executive Test and Evaluation Management 
Course (ETEMC) 

•f Fundamentals of Systems Acquisition 
Management Course (FSAMC) 

■f Introduction to Acquisition Workforce Test 
and Evaluation Course (lAWTEC) 

•f Intermediate Systems Acquisition Course 
(ISAC) 

■f Systems Acquisition Funds Management 
Course (SAFMC) 

The Regional Directors have practical and teaching 
experience in the program management life cycle 
from concept exploration/definition phase through 
the entire program management life cycle, culminat- 
ing in production, deployment, operations, and sup- 
port. They are available and can provide consulting 
services for their customers. In addition, the Regional 
Directors offer special seminars and presentations to 
the acquisition community such as Design to Cost and 
Accelerated Learning. Regarding mandatory training 
as specified by DoD Career Development Program for 
Acquisition Personnel (DoD 5000.52M) and as de- 
scribed in the Defense Acquisition University Catalog, 
they remain an excellent source of information.

Research, Consultins, and 
Information Division 


T he Research, Consulting, and Information Divi- 
sion (RCID) develops vital new knowledge in 
Defense Acquisition Management Education 
through long-term studies that aim to improve 
DoD Systems Acquisition Management. The 
Division also assists senior DoD acquisition ex- 
ecutives with exemplary consulting services that in- 
clude locating available experts, professional advice, 
and other assistance from College-wide assets. The 
knowledge gained from these studies and consulting 
tasks are disseminated through a variety of media de- 
signed to make relevant information available to the 
acquisition community. Products of DSMC research 
are included in reports for DoD executives and the 
Acquisition Community, electronic publications avail- 
able on the DSMC World Wide Web (www) Home 
Page, and printed publications. 


Highlights of the Research, Consulting, and Informa- 
tion Division accomplishments in the past year are 
listed below; 

-f DSMC Home Page came online in September 
1995. This service provides, via the Internet, 
the dissemination of a wide variety of DSMC 
products. The DSMC Home Page can be 
accessed by using the following link or Uniform 
Resource Locator; 

http://www.dsmc.dsm.mil 

Contact Mr. James Dobbins, Associate Dean for Infor- 
mation Dissemination, at (703) 805-5419 or DSN 655- 
5419, for more information concerning the DSMC 
Home Page. 


The Division develops its program initiatives through 
consultation with DoD executives, DSMC faculty, and 
members of the worldwide systems acquisition com- 
munity. Its products and services can greatly enhance 
the ability of acquisition professionals to prepare for 
the changing acquisition environment; assess the im- 
pact of these changes on acquisition policy, issues, or 
programs; and respond in an efficient and timely 
manner. 


■f Research on Ongoing Acquisition Research 
iROAR) became available as a link to the 
DSMC Home Page in December 1995. 
ROAR'n (ROAR via the net) is a simple point- 
and-click Internet navigator for cutting 
through DoD's unique database covering 
thousands of summaries about projects and 
studies on today's acquisition issues. 

ROAR'n belongs to the DoD acquisition 
community. Policy makers, their staffs, and 
acquisition researchers can access ROAR'n 
via the DSMC Home Page. The database 
covers thousands of active and recently 
completed acquisition projects worldwide.

■f Survey Design, Assistance, and Data 
Analysis Support. In an effort to determine 
the success of a recently implemented 
acquisition reform initiative regarding the 
Integrated Product Teams (IPT), RCID pro- 
vided survey design, assistance, and data 
analysis support to the Under Secretary of 
Defense (Acquisition and Technology). The 
College was sought for our survey develop- 
ment expertise to assist OSD and the 
Services in designing a survey to assess the 
recent implementation of the IPT process. 
This involved bringing the major players to 
DSMC in the Management Deliberation 


Center and determining the customers' 
needs; developing a succinct survey assess- 
ment; administering the survey; analyzing 
the data; and providing an outbrief of survey 
results to the customers. Information from 
the data analysis was briefed by the Deputy 
Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition 
Reform) to the Program Executive Officer 
(PEO) Conference held at DSMC in March 
1996. Since that time, OSD has requested 
DSMC's assistance in other upcoming 
surveys assessing the implementation of 
other acquisition reform initiatives. 


Contact Mr. Calvin Brown, Associate Dean for Re- 
search, at (703) 805-5404 or DSN 655-5404, for more 
information on RCID Survey Design, Assistance, and 
Data Analysis Support. 



RESEARCH 

The DSMC Research mission's fundamental purpose is 
to improve the DoD acquisition process and its man- 
agement. Within the RCID, the Research Team man- 
ages support for the overall program of applied 
acquisition research at the Coliege. The team devel- 
ops innovative solutions for today's acquisition-related 
issues while actively investigating tomorrow's poiicy 
issues. 



Recognizing that exempiary research is the key to ac- 
quisition knowledge and process improvement, the 
Research Team supports a variety of research-related 
activities, including the following: 


The DSMC Press pubiishes or distributes eiectronicaliy 
the results of this research. Listed below are para- 
graphs providing a brief overview of a seiect few of 
the RCID research programs available at DSMC: 


faculty research training; 

■f faculty research proposal evaluation process; 
-f the design of new management techniques 
for use by program management offices; and 
the formulation of acquisition policy alterna- 
tives. 

Research is conducted by faculty members and se- 
lected students. Cooperative research is vigorously 
promoted with outside professionals in systems acqui- 
sition management. Potential cooperative research- 
ers include members of the Service academies, 
federally funded research centers, and other academic 
institutions. The Associate Dean for Research man- 
ages these endeavors, which span the foliowing: 

4- Program Management 
4- Acquisition Strategy 
4- Contract Management 
4 - Competition 
4 - Productivity 
4 - Technical Support Services 
4 - Mission Effectiveness 



♦ The 1997 Acquisition Research Symposium 

is the seventeenth in a series of conferences 
that started in 1972. The Coiiege will co-host 
this major bienniai event next scheduled for 
June 25-27, 1997, under the sponsorship of 
the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense 
(Acquisition Reform). The primary purpose 
for the Symposium is to develop candid, 
open discussions among government, 
industry, and academia regarding major 
concepts, poiicy, issues, and procedures of 
concern to the acquisition community. 
Secondly, the Symposium provides a dy- 
namic forum for the discussion of recent 
research efforts and major thrusts (e.g.. 
Acquisition Reform) in the fieid of acquisition 
management. The 1995 Symposium had 
close to 400 attendees, including approxi- 
mately 200 government, 150 industry, and 
50 from academe. Contact Ms. Joan Sable, 
DSMC Program Chair, at (703) 805-5406 or 
DSN 655-5406 for more information on this 
Symposium. The College will distribute the 1997 
Call for Papers in September 1996, with a 
February 1997 deadline. 

♦ The Military Research Fellowship Program 

was chartered by the Under Secretary of 
Defense (Acquisition) in 1987 to enhance 
DSMC capabilities. This 11 -month program 
provides professional military education to 
selected officers and develops new and 
innovative concepts for systems acquisition 
management. This joint fellowship program 
is a unique opportunity for these selected

officers to supplement DSMC research goals 
and to impact the defense acquisition 
process. The program begins in August of 
each year and continues through the end of 
June of the following year. The first month is 
spent at DSMC for an orientation to the 
program as well as the staff and faculty of 
the College. 

The Fellows then participate in an 11 -week 
Program for Management Development at 
the Harvard University School of Business. 
Upon completion of the Harvard course, the 
Fellows report back to DSMC for the final 7 
months to complete their research effort. 

Excellent research publications result from 
the efforts of each fellowship group. The 
1995-96 Research Fellows project is examin- 
ing exploitation of the digital environment 
within the defense acquisition community 
and the barriers that are faced by program 
managers. This research effort is designed to 
provide a guide to program managers on the 
advantages and integration techniques 
available within the digital environment. A 
final report should be available in October 
1996. The next group of Military Research 
Fellows will report to DSMC on August 5, 
1996. For more information on this program, 
piease contact Ms. Joan Sable, Fellowship 
Program Coordinator, at (703) 805-5406 or 
DSN 655-5406. 


-f Cadet Summer Research Program. The 

Division also sponsors an innovative pro- 
gram that allows Service Academy students 
to intern with acquisition professionals. 
Program participants are exposed to a 
variety of acquisition-related tasks and 
contribute to active DSMC acquisition 
research projects. These students reside at 
DSMC during the 6-week program and are 
assigned to assist a specific DSMC faculty or 
staff member who acts as their mentor. 

This research program, which was initiated in 
1994, is made possible through a research 
extension agreement that RCID established 
with the Air Force Academy. The Division 
plans to establish a similar agreement with 
the U.S. Military Academy. Once these 
agreements are in place, the program will be 
expanded to include a student from each 
academy. If you have any questions concerning 
this program, please contact Mr. Calvin Brown, 
Associate Dean for Research, at (703) 805-5404 
or DSN 655-5404. 


The next Acquisition Research Symposium will be June 25-27, 1997.

CONSULTING SERVICES 

The Division's consulting mission is twofold. The first 
is to assist senior DoD acquisition executives with ex- 
emplary consulting services. The second is to provide 
a formal process for developing faculty awareness 
and competencies relating to acquisition consulting. 
Consulting services are designed to promote long- 
range readiness for customer organizations. The 
DSMC Consulting Team develops skills and abilities 
throughout the customer base to enable the custom- 
ers to enhance their own job performance. Typical 
consulting products include: 

organizational effectiveness and action 
planning; 

■f high-performance leadership and modeling; 

•f corporate planning methodologies and 
operations; 

reengineering organizations through 
product-line identification and process 
analysis; 

-f conducting transition of command; 

program review methodologies, strategies, 
and operations; and 

4 - technical analysis and evaluation of contract 
activities for program managers and litiga- 
tion support organizations. 

By providing educational workshops and field experi- 
ences for faculty members, the Consulting Team en- 
sures that the DSMC faculty remain well-informed 
about current acquisition challenges and issue resolu- 
tion. This information is then integrated into the 
DSMC curriculum and passed on to the acquisition 
community by DSMC graduates. 


Representatives from the Defense Acquisition University use the Management 
Deliberation Center as part of their process action team exercise. 



The RCID Consulting Team develops and manages 
two key programs that serve to improve defense ac- 
quisition management through the introduction of 
computer-aided program management and group 
technology support tools. The Division's Consulting 
Programs consist of ongoing or recurring activities 
that are designed to increase acquisition program 
management capabilities. These Consulting Programs 
provide the consulting team with the necessary tools 
to assist DoD acquisition executives. Current RCID 
Consulting Programs include the following: 

4 Croup Deliberation Support. The develop- 
ment and management of tools and services 
which provide group process enhancement 
support to the acquisition community. 

4 - Management Deliberation Center (MDC). A 

state-of-the-art facility in which various 
methodologies for group deliberation are 
enhanced with leading-edge technology to 
produce a cohesive group problem-solving 
and process improvement environment. The 
MDC is designed specifically to assist groups 
in dealing with complex managerial prob- 
lems. The technology provides computer- 
based aids for group consensus building and 
decision making. In addition, the MDC 
assists groups involved with results-oriented 
goal identification. It achieves this by 
helping group members to: 

- be productive, active participants; 

- develop consensus and to focus more 
effectively on important issues; 

- reduce time spent in meetings and to keep 
meetings on track; 

- document group efforts; and 

- improve the quality and efficiency of 
group efforts through enhanced Quality 
Management. 

The Division's consulting services also include assist- 
ing DoD acquisition executives and managers to lo- 
cate available experts, professional advice, and other 
assistance from College-wide assets. In addition, the 
Division's electronic Research on Ongoing Acquisition 
Research (ROAR) system helps DSMC customers find 
similar assets and points of contact on a nationwide 
basis. Please contact Mr. Daniel Robinson, Associate 
Dean for Consulting, at (703) 805-5420 or DSN 655- 
5420, for more information on these consulting services.

INFORMATION 

DISSEMINATION 


The RCID's Information Dissemination mission is to 
initially identify its various customers' expectations 
and requirements for acquisition information and 
then to capitalize on emerging technology to meet 
those needs. 

Successfully accomplishing this mission involves con- 
tinually pulsing the DoD acquisition community to 
identify evolving information needs and manage 
projects and processes that resuit in satisfying those 



requirements. The Division encourages and materi- 
aily supports relevant research projects and studies, 
and faciiitates the publication of information vital to 
the acquisition community's interests. The infor- 
mation dissemination function embraces a forward- 
looking view and meets its objectives by stimulating 
the Coliege faculty and student body to pursue initia- 
tives, to pubiish ideas, and to adopt innovative infor- 
mation dissemination methods. 


For more information on these efforts, contact the Re- 
search, Consulting, and Information Division at (703) 
805-2289, DSN 655-2289, or Fax (703) 805-3856.

Associate Dean of Faculty 



Mr. John T. 'Tim" Shannon 
Associate Dean of Faculty 


O ur objective is to have a highly qualified 
professional faculty capable of providing 
world-class education, research, and con- 
sulting in the various disciplines of acquisi- 
tion management. Although the majority 
of the College's professors are assigned to 
one of the 13 functional departments of the Faculty 
Division, these professors work closely with the ex- 
ecutive directors and professors of the other divisions 
and with the multiple course directors to accomplish 
the various missions of the College. 

The education mission involves the numerous aspects 
of delivering any educational course offering, includ- 
ing curriculum development, teaching that curriculum, 
and advising students on a routine basis. The majority 
of course offerings at the College involve members of 
the Faculty Division. 

Faculty members are also expected to conduct re- 
search in areas of interest to the acquisition commu- 
nity, such as topics or projects suggested by DoD 
acquisition organizations external to DSMC. The fac- 
ulty also initiates research within their individual spe- 
cialty areas as part of their professional development 
activities. We encourage faculty members to publish 
the results of their research efforts in professional and 
Service journals. 


Lt Col James L. Craig, Jr., USAF, Chairman, Software Management Department 
(right), discusses teaching tools with Dr. Carl Clavadetscher of Information 
Resources Management College. 



For the consulting mission, a limited number of fac- 
ulty members work long-term, policy-level consulting 
assignments through the Research, Consulting, and 
Information Division. The faculty also provides con- 
sulting assistance to offices involved in systems acqui- 
sition throughout the government. As part of faculty 
development and to maintain currency, faculty mem- 
bers are in close liaison with military departments, 
other educational institutions, industry and business 
organizations, and professional societies. 

The College recruits faculty members primarily from 
long-term acquisition professionals within all the mili- 
tary Services, other government agencies, and indus- 
try. They train as educators early in their tenure at the 
College through a comprehensive faculty develop- 
ment program that enhances teaching, research, and 
consulting skills. In addition, the College provides fac- 
ulty members professional development opportuni- 
ties, including working toward appropriate doctoral 
degrees, extensive involvement with professional so- 
cieties, and developmental assignments with nonedu- 
cational acquisition organizations such as program 
management offices. 

The profile of a typical DSMC faculty member shows 
an extensive systems acquisition experience level of 
12.7 years. Engineering and business management 
disciplines constitute the primary areas of academic 
expertise. Most faculty members have at least one 
master's degree - many have two, and the number 
with a doctorate continues to increase as a direct re- 
sult of an aggressive faculty development program. 

The Faculty Division consists of 13 departments and 
approximately 128 professionals. The following page

Executive Institute 



Hon. John W. Douglass (left), Senior Acquisition Executive for the Navy, is 
interviewed by Mr. Gibson G. LeBoeuf, Navy Chair, for an article in the Program 
Manager. Mr. Douglass is the first graduate of DSMC to become a Senior 
Acquisition Executive. 


T he mission of the Executive Institute is to pro- 
vide to the Commandant, Defense Systems 
Management College, a talented base of senior 
experienced government and industry execu- 
tives to serve in a variety of functions, based 
primarily on their individual backgrounds and 
organizational affiliations. In general terms, the mem- 
bers (designated as "Chairs" or "Visiting Professors") 
provide advice and counsel to the Commandant; 
serve as advisors/mentors to the faculty, staff, and 
students; serve as instructors or facilitators for agreed- 
upon topics; and support or initiate research and con- 
sulting efforts, as appropriate. More specific categories 
and other functions of Executive Institute members 
are described below. 

Service Chairs 

(ARMY, NAVY, AND AIR FORCE) 

Service Chairs act as senior liaison between the Com- 
mandant and their respective Services, and advise the 
Commandant and the College on the latest acquisi- 
tion policies, practices, and trends within the Services. 
This includes the Services' planning and implementa- 
tion of the Defense Acquisition Workforce Improve- 
ment Act (DAWIA). They bring a broad range of 
practical acquisition and related experience to be 
used in special tasking by the Commandant or in sup- 
port of College customers. 


DEFENSE LOGISTICS AGENCY CHAIR 
The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Chair is the senior 
liaison between the Commandant and DLA and ad- 
vises the Commandant and College on the latest ac- 
quisition policies, practices, and support services 
within DLA. This includes DLA's implementation of the 
DAWIA and the acquisition reform initiatives of DoD. 
The DLA Chair brings a broad range of practical expe- 
rience in the various missions and functions of DLA, 
which is used in special taskings by the Commandant 
or in support of College customers. 

Industry Chair 

The Industry Chair provides insight to the Commandant, 
faculty, and students regarding defense industry motiva- 
tions, concerns, and attitudes. The Chair brings to the 
College an informed insight into operations and policies 
of the defense industry. In addition, the Chair voices in- 
dustry positions concerning proposed acquisition policy 
that has a potentially significant impact on defense in- 
dustry operations and relationships with the DoD. 

VISITING PROFESSORS AND 
PROFESSOR EMERITUS 
These Executive Institute members provide to the 
Commandant a body of expertise to investigate areas 
of concern in acquisition and to recommend policy or 
process changes.

General Information 


T he College attempts to achieve a joint-Service 
balance within each DoD-sponsored course. De- 
fense industry, other federal agency, and allied 
nation participants of equivalent grade and/or 
position are invited to attend our courses on a 
space-available basis. 



REPORTING AND REGISTERING 
Initially, the College mails an information packet to 
each student accepted for admission. The packet con- 
tains specific reporting and registration instructions 
and other information necessary to ease the student's 
transition into the academic environment. 


TRANSPORTATION 

Commercial airlines serve Washington, DC, through 
Washington National Airport, a 30-minute drive from 
Fort Belvoir; Dulles International Airport, in the Vir- 
ginia countryside, a 45-minute drive; and Baltimore- 
Washington International Airport, halfway between 
Washington, DC, and Baltimore, MD. Fort Belvoir can 
be reached from the north and south by main high- 
ways Interstate 95 and U.S. Route 1. Fort Belvoir has 
no on-Post transportation. For their traveling conve- 
nience, students may wish to bring their own personal 
transportation, or arrange for a rental car. Flowever, 
DSMC does not pay for rental cars; these costs must 
be borne by the student's Service Acquisition Career 
Management Office or parent organization. 


TRAVEL, PER DIEM, AND 
REIMBURSEMENT 

Each student's Service Acquisition Career Manage- 
ment Office or parent organization funds the cost of

with microwave, and phone. 



travel (including local), per diem expenses, rental cars, 
and other entitlements. All students should visit their 
local finance and accounting office for a determina- 
tion of the amount of travel and per diem they will re- 
ceive and the method of accounting for expenses. 
Students should address any questions about entitle- 
ments to their local finance and accounting office. It is 
very important that students arrive with the govern- 
ment credit card to pay for all legitimate travel-related 
expenses or, if need be, draw cash advances in lieu of 
receiving advance per diem payments. The College 
cannot process travel claims or provide advance per 
diem payments. In the event questions surface con- 
cerning use of the government credit card, students 
should arrive knowing the name and telephone num- 
ber of the government credit card program coordina- 
tor for their Service or organization. 

VEHICLE REGISTRATION 
Fort Belvoir is an open Post, and Post vehicle registra- 
tion is not required. However, for easier access to Fort 
Belvoir during evening hours, we recommend tempo- 
rary registration for individuals attending courses 2 
weeks or longer. 

HOUSING 

Government-furnished housing for DSMC students is 
frequently available. The cost for Visiting Officers 
Quarters (VOQ) billeting is $30.00 or $36.00 per day 
for a suite, which is fully reimbursed through per diem 
payments. 

Spouses may stay with students at the additional rate 
of $5 per day (not reimbursable through per diem 
payments). Family arrangements or special consider- 
ations should be addressed to the VQQ Manager. Stu- 
dents attending the Advanced Program Management 
Course will be provided detailed housing information 
in either their notification packets from the DSMC 
Registrar's Qffice or from their Defense Acquisition Ca-

reer Management Office. Military or government civil- 
ian students attending all other courses in a tempo- 
rary duty (TOY) status must contact the VOQ at (703) 
805-2333/2005 or DSN 655-2333/2005 or by FAX 
(703) 805-3566 or DSN 655-3566 within 60 days of 
class start date to determine if quarters are available. 

If the VOQ representatives indicate that quarters are 
available, students (except Army military and civilians) 
will be given a confirmation number; they do not 
need to reconfirm availability. 

If the VOQ indicates that quarters are not available, 
students must obtain a "nonavailability" confirmation 
number from the VOQ and ensure that this confirma- 
tion number appears on their TDY orders. This is very 
important as it will serve as the student's Statement of 
Nonavailability. If the VOQ representative advises of 
quarters nonavailability. Army military and civilian 
students must then contact the Lodging Success Pro- 
gram Office (LSPO) in the National Capital Region at 
1-800-821-6559 to determine if contract housing is 
available. The LSPO, not the VOQ, will issue their 
nonavailability confirmation number if contract hous- 
ing is not available. 

Industry students are not entitled to stay in the VOQ. 

A list of area motels or short-term leased apartments 
will be provided to all out-of-town students in their 
acceptance packages. 

MEALS 

There are many Post dining facilities. These include 
the Fort Belvoir Officers and Noncommissioned Offic- 
ers Clubs, a cafeteria on campus serving breakfast 
and lunch, and other Post cafeterias and snack bars. 
Government personnel receive $38 per day for mess- 
ing. Statements of Nonavailability for messing will be 
issued prior to the last day of class. Although some 
pots and pans are provided, students staying several 



weeks or more in the VOQ may want to bring their 
own kitchen items with them for food preparation. 

ATTI RE 

Students attending the Advanced Program Manage- 
ment Course will be provided detailed attire informa- 
tion in their notification packets. On the first day of 
classes and infrequently, as designated by course di- 
rectors, military students are asked to wear their sea- 
sonal uniform. Concurrently, on uniform days, civilian 
students are asked to wear coat and tie or equivalent 
for women. Appropriate business civilian casual attire 
is authorized by the Commandant at all other times. 
Blue jeans, shorts, sneakers, tennis shoes, sandals, or 
other casual clothing are not appropriate attire. Fur- 
ther information will be provided on the first day of 
class. Weather extremes in the metropolitan area in- 
clude heavy snow and zero degree temperatures in 
winter and humid summers near 100 degrees. 

ATTENDANCE POLICY 
Students attending the Advanced Program Manage- 
ment Course will be provided detailed attendance 
policy information in their notification packets. For 
students attending all other courses, the policy re- 
quires attendance at all scheduled classes. If a valid 
need (e.g., sickness or automobile problems) occurs, 
students may, with Course Director's approval, be 
granted up to 2 hours per course week of excused ab- 
sence. An early plane reservation is not a valid excuse 
to leave early on the last day of class. Students are 
asked to clear their work schedules prior to arrival at 
DSMC as the rigorous daily schedules do not permit 
time for meetings, appointments, or extensive tele- 
phone calls during the class day. Students who ex- 
ceed the absentee standard will not receive a 
graduation diploma. Remediation to make up any 
missed instruction is at the discretion of the Course 
Director.

LIBRARY AND 

LEARNING RESOURCE SERVICES 
The David D. Acker Library provides a quiet space for 
reading or studying. As the College's primary reposi- 
tory of information, it contains a collection of books, 
technical reports, congressional documents, and mili- 
tary regulations, as weii as files of defense acquisition 
program documentation. The library maintains over 
400 periodical subscriptions with back issues on mi- 
crofiim, and 20 CD-ROM databases providing indexes 
and full texts of a variety of periodicai and govern- 
ment literature. An online catalog of the library's hold- 
ings is accessible to workstations across the DSMC 
campus via the DSMC Local Area Network and the 
World Wide Web. In addition, reference librarians use 
numerous online systems via modem or the Internet 
to assist DSMC researchers. 

The Learning Resource Center (LRC) provides opportu- 
nities for individual, self-directed training or refresher 
work in subjects related to acquisition management 
and professional development. Resources range from 
text, audio and video tapes, computer-based instruc- 
tion, to interactive multimedia. Most training pro- 
grams are available for use at the LRC Computer Lab 
or may be checked out for use while attending the 
College. 

ATH LETICS 

The College encourages student participation in ath- 
letic activities as time and schedules permit. The 
DSMC has excellent in-house facilities and equipment 
for exercise at the Wellness Center. Individuals and 
teams representing students, faculty, and staff enjoy 
golf, tennis, softball, swimming, bowling, basketball, 
racquetball, and jogging. 


Students of APMC visit Capitol Hill. 




ACTI VITI ES 

The College promotes out-of-class activities to 
complement the formal academic process. For stu- 
dents of the Advanced Program Management Course, 
the College plans a variety of events that foster stu- 
dent, faculty, and staff participation and camaraderie. 
This creates the environment for personal growth and 
achievement that should be the hallmark of any edu- 
cational system. 

HANDICAPPED ACCOMMODATIONS 
Students with disabilities who are scheduled to attend 
DSMC courses should notify their local training office 
and the DSMC Office of the Registrar as soon as pos- 
sible prior to class start date to ensure that we make 
the appropriate accommodations. 

CANCELLATIONS 

If a prospective student's circumstances dictate can- 
celing attendance at a course after receiving notifica- 
tion of acceptance, we encourage students to make 
notification through their local training office to their 
Service point of contact. Students should also report 
cancellations occurring within 5 working days of the 
class start date to the Office of the Registrar. This will 
afford a student substitute the opportunity to receive 
the educational experience offered by DSMC.

Sources of DSMC Students 



s a joint-Service, DoD institution, the DSMC 
tailors its academic program to the needs 
of current or future military acquisition 
managers. At the same time, the College's 
emphasis on the concept of program man- 
agement provides a unique educational op- 


portunity for managers from other federal agencies, 
defense industry and, in some cases, from allied na- 
tions. We encourage non-DoD personnel and industry 
to attend; availability varies from course to course.

Alumni Association 





Mr. Wayne E. Glass 
President, Alumni 
Association 


M ore than 60 DSMC graduates, representing 
virtually every Program Management 
Course, met at the College in October 
1983 and established a DSMC Alumni 
Association. Brigadier General Benjamin J. 
Pellegrini, USA, Commandant, welcomed 
the group and expressed the support of DSMC man- 
agement. 


als who are or have previously served in key defense 
acquisition management and program management 
positions. Present and past faculty and professional 
staff members assigned to DSMC for at least 24 
months can also join. Persons who have made out- 
standing contributions in the area of defense acquisi- 
tion management, or to the DSMC, may be elected 
honorary members. 

In 1993, the Alumni Association established the David 
D. Acker "Skill in Communication Award" to be given 
to outstanding individuals in recognition of their ex- 
ceptional speaking, writing, or teaching skills. 

The Association also publishes a quarterly newsletter 
to keep its membership informed of happenings in 
the defense systems acquisition management field, 
special events of interest to members, and planned 
member activities. 


Today, with a membership of over 2,000, the Associa- 
tion provides a forum for continuing professional 
growth of the defense acquisition management com- 
munity, and is a source of acquisition management 
expertise for the College. 

The Alumni Association, in conjunction with DSMC 
faculty and staff, conducts a symposium annually, 
usually in the spring or summer. Generally, each sym- 
posium features discussions of changes in the DoD 
acquisition process and its management, and major 
changes and events at the College. This 3-day event 
also includes presentations by Executive Office and 
congressional leaders, senior DoD and industry offi- 
cials, panels, and workshops. Themes of past sympo- 
siums include; "Shortening the Acquisition Cycle"; "The 
Program Manager Controlling the Controllables"; "Pro- 
curement Reform: What Has Happened and What's 
Ahead?"; "Government/Industry Relationships: Team- 
ing for Success"; "Learning from Successful Programs"; 
"Maintaining Acquisition Excellence with Declining Re- 
sources"; "Understanding Acquisition Reform"; and 
"Implementing Acquisition Reform." Symposiums pro- 
vide an opportunity for graduates and faculty to re- 
new acquaintances and update program 
management and acquisition management skills. 

The College encourages DSMC graduates to join and 
become active in the Association. Membership is 
open to graduates of the Program Management 
Course, Advanced Program Management Course, 
graduates of one or more short courses, and individu- 


The Alumni Association is growing - and so are ser- 
vices to our members. If you are interested in Associa- 
tion membership, or if you would like to serve in any 
capacity, you may access the Association easily

The Academic Prosram 

T he environment of defense systems acquisition 
is an ever-changing mosaic of requirements, 
budgetary constraints, technological capabili- 
ties, and political/strategic considerations. Pre- 
paring a manager to work effectively within this 
environment requires a dynamic educational 
program that blends abstract concepts with real-world 
experience. The courses offered by DSMC are designed 
to respond to this need. They are intended to introduce 
students to the world of systems acquisition and pre- 
pare them to function as productive acquisition work- 
force professionals. The content of each course and 
sub-course is continuously monitored and altered, 
when necessary, to reflect changing real-world condi- 
tions. Additionally, new short courses are developed in 
answer to needs of a specific management group, or in 
response to requests of other government agencies. 

Courses are conducted by civilian and military faculty, 
whose efforts are complemented by guest lecturers 
from government, industry, and academic communi- 
ties. The College non-attribution policy is designed to 
encourage guest lecturers to take part in open, candid 
discussions with students. Such interaction enhances 
the real-world flavor of the DSMC experience. 

DSMC courses fall into three general categories: 

Mandatory Courses: The Defense Acquisition Univer- 
sity (DAU) has designated certain courses as Manda- 
tory. They meet all or part of the training 
requirements for certification in various career fields 
within each Service's Acquisition Corps at Levels I, II, 
or 111. Primary authority for these courses is the De- 
fense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act, imple- 
mented by DoDD 5000.52 and DoD 5000. 52-M. The 
University's annual Catalog lists detailed mandatory 
requirements for certification in all career fields. The 
table on p. 35 lists DSMC courses that satisfy manda- 
tory or desired training requirements for certification 
at various levels of nine acquisition career fields. The 
Director, Acquisition Career Management (DACM) for 
each Service and the DACM for each Defense Agency 
manage attendance at these courses. Normally, the 
DACMs give priority to acquisition workforce mem-

bers who are pursuing certification in an acquisition 
career field. It is also recommended that they meet 
appropriate certification-level requirements. For ex- 
ample, attendance at a Level III course presumes the 
student meets all requirements for and is certified at 
Level II in that career field. Working with the Service 
DACMs, DAU funds Temporary Duty (TDY) expenses 
for attending these courses. 

Assignment-specific Courses: The College intro- 
duced this new category of courses in FY 95. These 
courses are required to achieve qualification for spe- 
cific assignments or billets rather than for certification 
at a level in a specific career field. During FY 96, DSMC 
will offer 14 assignment-specific courses. Of the 14 
courses, 3 involve the international acquisition arena, 
while the remaining 11 also have concurrent manda- 
tory status in established career fields. The DAU Cata- 
log contains further details on assignment-specific 
courses. In addition, your Service or Agency DACM can 
confirm if your position justifies this type of training. 
Should your Service or Agency DACM validate the re- 
quirement for your attendance at an assignment-specific 
course, DAU, working through your Service or Agency 
DACM, will fund TDY expenses. 

Continuing Education Courses: Continuing Educa- 
tion Courses are offered by DSMC to (1) provide post- 
Level III training to the acquisition workforce; or (2) 
provide acquisition training to senior managers who 
are not members of the acquisition workforce but 
have major peripheral responsibilities or interface 
with the defense acquisition system. Currently, DSMC 
has three Continuing Education Courses. Each student's 
parent command funds TDY expenses for attending 
these courses. 

The following pages list courses offered by the College. 
For more specific information about courses and sched- 
ules, call the Registrar: (703) 805-2227/3704/2146/ 
2149/2850; DSN 655-2227/3704/2146/2149/2850.

Career Development 
DoD 5000.52-M 



n response to the Defense Acquisition Workforce 
Improvement Act (DAWIA), the Under Secretary of 
Defense (Acquisition and Technology) published 
DoDD 5000.52 (25 Oct 91) and DoD 5000.52-M 
(22 Nov 95) to establish career development pro- 
cedures for the DoD Acquisition Corps. The DoD 
5000.52-M describes in detail the assignments, expe- 
rience, education, and training requirements neces- 
sary to obtain certification at each of the 3 levels for 
12 acquisition career fields. 

The DSMC is part of a consortium of DoD acquisition 
schools that make up the Defense Acquisition Univer- 
sity (DAU). Primarily, DAU focuses on coordinating 
and directing the development and offering of 
courses designed to meet education certification re- 
quirements for the acquisition career fields. In FY 97, 
DSMC offers 30 courses that satisfy mandatory or de- 
sired training requirements for certification at various 
levels for 9 of the 12 acquisition career fields. These 
courses are easily recognized, as they carry both 
DSMC and DAU course identifiers. For these courses, 
priority will be given to acquisition workforce mem- 
bers who are pursuing certification and meet the 
course prerequisites. 


In addition, DSMC offers additional DSMC-specific 
courses and workshops designed to meet the full 
spectrum of needs across our acquisition workforce. 
They carry only the DSMC course identifier. 

The table on p. 35 lists the courses DSMC offers and 
identifies which are mandatory and desired for acqui- 
sition career field certification, and which are DSMC- 
specific. A description of all the courses offered at 
DSMC begins on p. 41.

DSMC LOCATIONS 


Fort Belvoir, VA 

Fort Belvoir is located south of 
Alexandria, Virginia. Taking 1-95, the 
Fort Belvoir exit is 3.7 miles south of 
the Capital Beltway (495). 

A post map is located at each of 
the three entrances. The campus is 
easy to find from the Main (Pence) 

Gate, located at the intersection of 
Route 1 and Belvoir Road. Follow 
Belvoir Road to 1 8th Street. The main 
building, 202, has four large columns 
and a semicircular driveway. It is 
opposite a large parade field be- 
tween 1 8th and 1 9th Streets. All 
buildings are numbered. If you get 
lost, call 1-800-845-7606. 

From National Airport 

Travel south on Route 1 /Rich- 
mond Flighway through Alexandria 
to Fort Belvoir. There are many 
traffic lights, fast food places, and 
gas stations. This business-district 
route is strictly a slow trip. An 
alternate route (1 5.3 miles) would be 
to take scenic George Washington/Mt. Vernon Parkway 
(named Washington Street in town) south through Old Town 
Alexandria. From the airport's main terminal, follow the green 
highway signs toward Alexandria. Proceed along the Potomac 
River past Mt. Vernon, historic home of George Washington, 
until you get to the Route 1 intersection; turn left (south) on 
Route 1 . Go up the hill .7 of a mile; turn left and go through 
the Main (Pence) Gate. 

You can get to Fort Belvoir from National Airport by using 
the "Metrorail" subway in combination with bus services. Take 
Metrorail to the Pentagon and transfer to bus 9A; be sure you 
have exact change for the bus. When you arrive at Fort Belvoir, 
exit at the intersections of either 1 8th Street and Gunston or 
1 8th and Belvoir Road. (For additional information, call 202- 
637-7000.) 

From the Maryland Side of the Beltway (Prince 
George's County) 

Take the Beltway (495) across the Potomac River via the 
Woodrow Wilson Bridge and continue on 495 to the exit for I- 
95. Go south on 1-95 toward Richmond. (See From 1-95 
Traveling South.) 


From Dulles Airport and/or Virginia Side of the Capital 
Beltway (Fairfax County) 

Take the Dulles Access Road from Dulles Airport and exit on 
the Capital Beltway (495). Go south toward Alexandria and 
Richmond. As you reach the lower part of the Beltway, exit 
south on 1-95 toward Richmond. (See From 1-95 Traveling 
South.) (No Metrorail access.) 

From 1-95 Traveling South 

Take this heavily congested route south, pass the 
Springfield/Franconia exit, and exit at 1 66 (Newington/Fort 
Belvoir). From this ramp, you will travel south on Backlick Road 
for 3.1 miles to Route 1 /Richmond Flighway (Fless gas station 
will be on the right). Turn left (north) on Route 1 and go .9 of a 
mile to the top of the hill, where you will see the Fort Belvoir 
Main (Pence) Gate on the right. Enter this gate to the south side 
of the post. 

From Richmond 1-95 Traveling North 

Take 1-95 north to the Fort Belvoir/Mt. Vernon exit. You will 
now be on Route 1 /Richmond Flighway. Drive 6.4 miles to the 
Fort Belvoir Main (Pence) Gate on the right.

Course Descriptions 

Advanced International 
Management Workshop 

[PMT 304] Assisnment-specific Course 

S tructured as an intensive 1-week workshop in 
international negotiation and international ac- 
quisition management issues, attendees will 
analyze, synthesize, and apply their knowledge 
of international acquisition in a simulated in- 
ternational negotiation of a cooperative de- 
fense agreement (normally called a Memorandum of 
Understanding or Agreement). Specific topics will in- 
clude cultural sensitivity, international negotiation, 
preparation for negotiations, authority to develop and 
conclude an agreement, DoD policies and experi- 
ences, ethical considerations, and acquisition man- 
agement issues. The role of the Congress and the 
Department of Commerce as well as Service ap- 
proaches will be explored. 

COURSE ELIGIBILITY 
The workshop is open to mid-level military officers, 
0-4 and above, DoD civilians GS-13 and above, and 
industry equivalents. Due to security restrictions, un- 
der most circumstances allied students are ineligible 
to attend. This is an advanced-level workshop, and at- 
tendees should have a basic understanding of U.S. do- 
mestic and international defense acquisition. As 
structured, the workshop targets those currently in, or 
entering, positions of responsibility in international, or 
potentially international programs, ranging from 
simple Data Exchange Agreements to complex coop- 
erative development, production, and support programs. 

This course is an Assignment-specific course for 
GS-13 and above and military 0-4 and above, 
serving in or entering positions identified as re- 
quiring international acquisition qualification train- 
ing at Career Level III. 


Advanced Production and 
Quality Management Course 

[PQM 301] Mandatory Course 


O ur 2-week Advanced Production and Qual- 
ity Management Course (APQMC) is a 
capstone, senior-level systems manage- 
ment course structured around integrated 
product development and concurrent engi- 
neering. The course investigates day-to- 
day strategic policy development and decision mak- 
ing issues relevant to successfully managing three 
core technical tasks in DoD acquisition - systems and 
process development, manufacturing, and product 
quality verification. It also stresses strategic planning, 
the logical thinking process, and the skills required to 
identify and work through policy, regulatory, techni- 
cal, or physical constraints to management effective- 
ness. The APQMC promotes a balance between 
technical management activities, organizational inte- 
gration, and applied knowledge and leadership skills. 


The entire course centers on "quality" in its broadest 
connotation. Students begin by deriving suitable op- 
erational definitions and measures. Significant por- 
tions of the course concentrate on the principal 
themes of its title - manufacturing and quality assur- 
ance - with special attention to specific lessons 
learned and state-of-the-art tools and techniques. 
Qther major supplementary topics are: acquisition 
policy review, contract management and administra- 
tion, contractor finance, ethics, and professionalism. 
Prominent guest lecturers and panel members from 
government and industry present timely examples or 
conduct open panel discussions appropriate to the 
course objective and emphasis. Analytical discussions 
of "real life" case studies complete the course. 


COURSE ELIGIBILITY 
This course has been designed for DoD personnel 
who have completed PQM 101, Production and Qual- 
ity Management Fundamentals Course; and PQM 201, 
Intermediate Production and Quality Management 
Course.

Advanced Program 
Management Course 

[PMT 302] Mandatory Course 



P roviding a comprehensive examination of the 
integrated process used in systems acquisition 
management, the 14-week Advanced Program 
Management Course (APMC) curricuium is 
based on a set of acquisition management 
competencies established by the Acquisition 
Management Functional Board for Level III certifica- 
tion in the Program Management Career Field. The 
course curriculum presumes the knowledge baseline 
of the Intermediate Systems Acquisition Course (ISAC). 
Primary objectives of the course follow: 

■¥ Demonstrate, from the program manage- 
ment perspective, the integration of func- 
tional disciplines into the dynamic processes 
used to manage systems; 

-f Provide a learning environment for students 
that encourages student inquiry and re- 
sponds to their individual needs as much as 
possible; 

-f Provide a curriculum that makes it possible 
for the student to develop the abilities to en- 
hance their performance in future acquisi- 
tion-related positions; and 
-f Provide a curriculum that meets the require- 
ments (competencies) established by the Ac- 
quisition Management Functional Board and 
that also has the flexibility to continuously 
reflect the changing defense acquisition envi- 
ronment. 

The primary learning methodology is faculty-assisted, 
but student-led, small group cases and exercises. Sub- 
stantial feedback by faculty members on the results of 
student activities is also a key part of the course learn- 


ing process. Through these cases and exercises, the 
dynamic interaction among the acquisition functional 
disciplines is explored in detail. Also, the importance 
of developing and managing effective integrated ac- 
quisition management teams is emphasized. To fur- 
ther emphasize the importance and complexity of this 
dynamic integration, students are organized and ex- 
pected to function during the cases and exercises as 
integrated product/process teams. The cases and ex- 
ercises are student-centered; and the topic areas in 
some lessons can, within time and curriculum con- 
straints, be determined by the students. 

Subject areas include the functional disciplines and 
competencies; defense acquisition policy, with par- 
ticular emphasis on the three decision making sup- 
port systems; contractor finance; cost/schedule 
management; contract management; funds manage- 
ment; logistics support management; managerial de- 
velopment; manufacturing management; principles of 
program management; software management; sys- 
tems engineering management; and test and evalua- 
tion. 

The College uses a variety of programs to enrich the 
DSMC learning experience. 

■¥ Interdisciplinary exercises are used during 
the course to enhance the integration of the 
functional area disciplines. These exercises 
provide an experiential learning process and 
challenge students to apply and integrate 
functional knowledge while using quality 
tools and integrated process and team 
concepts. 

The individual learning program is designed 
for students to tailor individual learning 



42 



needs as part of their continuing self- 
assessment. Students develop an individual 
learning plan designed to acquire certain 
skills and knowledge in elective classes 
and/or self-study, using resources like the 
DSMC Acker Library, the DSMC Learning 
Resource Center, faculty, other students, and 
local experts and organizations. 

-f Through the College's Capitol Hill Program, 
students learn how congressional activities 
impact acquisition management; study the 
operations of Congress; receive briefings on 
current congressional activities and issues; 
and take a 1-day field trip to Capitol Hill. 

COURSE ELIGIBILITY 
The College designed the APMC for military and civil- 
ian acquisition workforce members in the military 
rank of 0-4/0-5, or civilian GS grade of 13/14 who are 
Acquisition Corps-qualified and have successfully 
completed ACQ 101 and ACQ 201 or equivalent. A Se- 
cret security clearance is required. 

This is a Mandatory course for Level III certification 
in the Program Management Career Field (DoD 
5000.52-M). 


Advanced Software 
Acquisition Management 
Course 

[SAM 301] Assisnment-specific Course 


s designed, the Advanced Software Acquisi- 
tion Management Course (ASAMC) is a 14-day, 
senior-level, decision-oriented course focus- 
ing on management activities and key pro- 
cesses used to acquire software-intensive 
systems for DoD. The ASAMC covers soft- 
ware-intensive systems from the weapon system; 
Command, Control, Communications, Computers and 
Intelligence (C41); and automated information system 
(AIS) domains. The course uses lectures, guest speak- 
ers from government and industry, individual and 
team exercises, group discussions, and case studies to 
highlight process-oriented issues at the higher levels 
of management. Students work both individually and 
in teams and complete exercises and case studies to 
develop the competencies necessary to effectively 
carry out the job of program manager, deputy pro- 
gram manager, or similar top-management-level soft- 
ware acquisition management positions. 


The ASAMC starts with an initial student assessment 
and subsequent assignment of students to teams. The 
"teaming" concept provides each team member with a 
broad base for collaborative learning. Case studies re- 
quire students to review case material and, both indi- 
vidually and collectively, address key software acquisi- 
tion management issues. Students are frequently 
assessed during the course and provided opportuni- 
ties for remedial training on identified weaknesses. 

After completing the ASAMC, the student will have 
demonstrated a level of knowledge and ability com- 
mensurate with the competence required of a Level III 
software acquisition manager. Also, the student will 



43 





have performed, through the case studies, a wide 
range of management tasks required during the ac- 
quisition of a software-intensive weapon system, AIS, 
and C4I system. The course-long student assessment 
provided by the short exercises and individual case 
study and group exercise results will be wrapped up 
by a final student assessment. At the completion of 
the ASAMC, each student will be provided with a spe- 
cific competency appraisal and recommendations for 
further development. 

COURSE ELIGIBILITY 
The ASAMC is open to all military officers, rank 0-4 
and above, and DoD civilians, GS-12 and above, who 
are routinely given duties managing software de- 
velopment and/or acquiring software and who work 
in development programs that have total program 
costs for software of $20 million or more, procure- 
ment programs that have total program costs of $30 
million for software, programs that have sustainment 
costs of $1 million or more for software annually, or 
programs where post-deployment software support is 
ongoing. Students should have successfully completed 
the Intermediate Software Acquisition Management 
Course (ISAMC), SAM 201, before attending this 
course. 

This course is required for acquisition personnel 
serving in Level III software acquisition manage- 
ment positions (DoD 5000.52-M). 


Advanced Systems Planning, 
Research, Development, and 
Engineering Course 

[SYS 301] Mandatory Course 


D esigned for senior-level DoD personnel, the 
2-week Advanced Systems Planning, Re- 
search, Development, and Engineering Course 
(ASPRDEC) uses a facilitated scenario. This 
allows participants to improve their compe- 
tence in the technical management of the 
science, technology, and systems engineering pro- 
cesses and procedures that develop during each ac- 
quisition phase of a systems life cycle. The curriculum 
integrates the participants into a technical role where 
they interpret and analyze technical problems 
through evaluation and forecasting techniques for 
cost, schedule, performance, and risk issues. The par- 
ticipants will synthesize and integrate Program Man- 
agement Office activities and ensure the integrity and 
productivity of research, development, and engineer- 
ing decision making. 


The common tools of systems planning research, de- 
velopment, and engineering are used within the 
framework of an interactive, progressive scenario that 
starts with a need and progresses through the acquisi- 
tion milestones and phases. The students will employ 
requirements analyses, risk management, technical 
performance measures, trade-off analyses, configura- 
tion and data management, technical reviews, fore- 
casting, design of experiments, work breakdown 
structures, and specification and statement of work 
tailoring to control and evaluate the evolutionary de- 
sign of a target system. 


COURSE ELIGIBILITY 
The College designed ASPRDEC for DoD personnel 
with 4 years of experience in positions of increasing 
responsibility and complexity in Engineering or 
Science; and 3 years in an acquisition position, which 
includes 2 years in a Science or Engineering Career 
Field. A recommended prerequisite for attendance is 
DAU's SYS 201 course. Military officers of rank 0-4 
and above, and DoD civilians in grades GM-13 and 
above, are the intended audience. 


This is a Mandatory course for Level III certification 
in the Systems Planning, Research, Development, 
and Engineering Career Field (DoD 5000.52-M).

Correspondence Course 


C ontract Performance Management (CPM) is 

the application of selected management prac- 
tices, emphasizing objective measurement of 
work accomplishment (i.e., "earned value") for 
evaluating progress toward delivery of an 
agreed-to product or service. The 8-day Con- 
tract Performance Management Fundamentals Course 
(CPMFC) introduces the student to the tasks associ- 
ated with earned value management. This compe- 
tency-based, process-oriented course uses a variety of 
instructional techniques to introduce students to the 
discipline, and then builds on the basic knowledge 
through exercises and case studies. The course pre- 
pares students for participation in government Pro- 
gram Management Office activities by developing the 
CPM-unique knowledge, skills, and task performance 
abilities for application in the workplace. The course 
specifically addresses DoD requirements such as Cost/ 
Schedule Control Systems Criteria (C/SCSC) and Cost/ 
Schedule Status Report (C/SSR). 


[BFM 102] Mandatory and /\ssisnment-specif ic Course 

T he correspondence version of the Contract Per- 
formance Management Fundamentals Course 
(CPMFC) introduces the student to DoD contrac- 
tor performance management requirements. 
The course addresses the key concept of "earned 
value management"; the use, implementation, 
and surveillance process of the Cost/Schedule Control 
Systems Criteria (C/SCSC); and the buiiding and mainte- 
nance of a performance measurement baseline and 
data analysis techniques useful for Contract Performance 
Management practitioners and program managers. 

The correspondence course inciudes extensive use of 
CD-ROM multimedia instructional materials and practi- 
cal workbook exercises. Students assess sample instru- 
ments used to evaiuate contractor Management 
Control Systems for compliance to the C/SCSC and do 
actual analysis of performance data to measure trends.

Contractor Finance for 
Acquisition Managers 
Course 

[BFM 204] Mandatory Course 

esigned for government personnel who deal 
directly with contractors or contractor infor- 
mation/data, the 1-week Contractor Finance 
for Acquisition Managers Course (CFAMC) 
provides students with a better understand- 
ing of their contractors. Contractor manage- 
ment is obligated to provide a fair return on stock- 
holders' investments in the company. Their financial 
motivations influence virtually all of the management 
systems they use and management decisions they 
make; however, they must comply with a large 
amount of legislation and regulation, which provides 
significant constraints to how they operate. According 
to a government finding, "A lack of understanding of 
corporate financial health and motivation is a signifi- 
cant contributor to major problems on some pro- 
grams, leading up to and including program cancella- 
tion." Eliminating this "lack of understanding" is the 
reason CFAMC is a Mandatory course for Level II certi- 
fication in the Business, Cost Estimating, and Financial 
Management Career Field. The course curriculum 
includes: 

4 - a discussion of the interrelationships among 
the contractors' costing procedures, and their 
financial and managerial accounting sys- 
tems; 

4 - an analysis of cost principles and indirect 
cost management in DoD contracts, includ- 
ing how overhead rates are calculated and 
used; 

4 - the contractor's perspective on planning and 
control in business management; and 

4 - a discussion of the environment in which 
industry prepares and government personnel 
evaluate cost proposals. 

The College structured this course to achieve a bal- 
anced presentation of financial and costing issues af- 
fecting the day-to-day working relationship between 
government and industry. 

Students learn to recognize financial management is- 
sues, while learning the vocabulary and concepts nec- 
essary to understand and discuss these issues with 



the government contractor community. This increases 
the likelihood that attendees can identify financial 
problems before these problems adversely impact a 
program. 

Course content includes most of the elements found 
in courses similar to the "Finance for Non-Financial 
Managers Course," sponsored by the American Man- 
agement Association. Courses such as these are in- 
tended to attract students from general commercial 
industries. In contrast, CFAMC concentrates on the 
government contracting industry and includes the 
special financial regulations the government requires 
in the Federal Acquisition Regulation and the Cost Ac- 
counting Standards. This makes it uniquely applicable 
to general and functional managers in all government

Defense Acquisition Executive 
Overview Workshop 

[DSMC-5] Continuins Education Course 

esigned for high-ranking DoD personnel, this 
2-day workshop offers an executive-level un- 
derstanding of the defense systems acquisi- 
tion process. That need may be across the 
entire spectrum of the process or only in one 
or two areas. Typically, the need arises when 
an individual is about to take on a new command or 
new assignment. 

In a departure from its normal practice of scheduling 
classes in advance, the College offers this workshop 
on an "on demand" basis; i.e., when a potential regis- 
trant contacts the DSMC course director to request at- 
tendance, together the two negotiate mutually 
acceptable dates for the workshop. The course direc- 
tor will then meet with the potential registrant, and to- 
gether they will tailor the workshop to ensure that 
only those topics of specific interest to the potential 
registrant are addressed. 

The pilot for this workshop was conducted for a DoD 
political appointee in March 1995. In the first 9 
months of FY 96, 6 workshops were conducted in re- 
sponse to requests from general/flag officers. 

COURSE ELIGIBILITY 

This workshop is available to all DoD general/flag of- 
ficers, political appointees, and senior executive ser- 
vice civilian employees. Membership in an Acquisition 
Corps career program is not required. 


Executive Management 
Course 

[DSMC-30] Continuing Education Course 

esigned for individuals who are not graduates 
of the DSMC Program Management Course 
or Advanced Program Management Course, 
this 3-week course serves senior managers 
who interface with, or otherwise need to 
understand the defense acquisition system. 
The course explores how participants can better sup- 
port, guide, and oversee acquisition programs 
through case studies, examples, and discussions 
among DSMC faculty, guest speakers from the DoD 
community, and the course participants. 

COURSE ELIGIBILITY 
This course is open to military officers and civilians, 
0-6/GM-15, who are working in positions requiring an 
understanding and working knowledge of DoD sys- 
tems acquisition. Additionally, participants of equiva- 
lent rank from the defense industry and other federal 
agencies are admitted on a space-available basis. A 
Secret security clearance is required for all participants.

Executive Program Managers 
Course 

[PMT 303] Assisnment-specific Course 

he 4-week Executive Program Managers Course 
(EPMC) builds on the general program manage- 
ment competencies acquired during previous 
attendance at the Program Management 
Course (PMC) or Advanced Program Manage- 
ment Course (APMC). Also building on subse- 
quent on-the-job experience, EPMC provides the se- 
lected participants an opportunity to enhance their 
skills through this concentrated 4-week period pre- 
ceded by approximately 60 days of advance, part- 
time work wherein they assess the status of their 
assigned programs; personal strengths and weak- 
nesses in relation to problems, issues, and concerns of 
their programs; and impacts that may result from re- 
cent policy changes in system acquisition. 

The course begins with a 2-day orientation workshop, 
focusing on an Assess-Plan-Do" process for conduct- 
ing continuous program assessment and learning. 

The College conducts the workshop 60 days prior to 
the 4-week, on-campus phase, resulting in a plan for 
assessing each participant's program and a draft 
learning plan. Program assessments enable new Pro- 
gram Executive Officers (PEO) and Acquisition Cat- 
egory I and II (ACAT I and II) Program Managers/ 
Deputy Program Managers (PM/DPM) to determine 
and prioritize their learning efforts based on their 
program's phase, critical activities, or immediate is- 
sues. The PMXDPM should meet with his/her future 
PEO for guidance on areas of specific interest. Addi- 
tionally, the College encourages visits to matrix orga- 
nizations, Defense Plant Representatives Offices, 
laboratories, contractors. Service, and Office of the 
Secretary of Defense (OSD) officials. 




The outcome of this activity will be a personally tai- 
lored learning plan or contract that is based on identi- 
fied program issues and related program manage- 
ment competency needs. The learning plan provides 
a "roadmap" that allows students to focus their energy 
and maximize their time during the learning day. In 
preparation for the 4-week period, the College assigns 
each participant a senior DSMC faculty member as 
their Learning Team Manager (LTM). The LTM supports 
the participant's program assessment and learning 
needs during the initial assessment phase, the 4 
weeks on campus, and after the course. 

The course emphasizes an iterative Assess-Plan-Do 
process for program management and stresses the 
value of a team approach. During the 4 weeks at 
DSMC, the participant joins other prospective PEOs, 
PMs, and DPMs in a learning environment designed 
to accommodate individual learning styles while pro- 
moting group learning from peers. Participants 
present their program assessments to their LTM and 
peers. The learning dialogue supports advanced 
learning in the process of program assessment and 
facilitates each participant's opportunity to discover 
additional learning needs. Core workshops provide 
the latest policies and practices in areas considered 
critical for all future PEOs/PMs/DPMs. 

The majority of the time in Weeks 2, 3, and 4 is re- 
served for learner-scheduled activities and continued 
program assessment. This time will enable partici- 
pants to internalize the lessons learned from Week 1 
activities, and actively pursue a deeper understanding 
of their program(s) and program problems/issues. Par- 
ticipants may have members of their program office 
or PEO staff join in special training sessions. Distin- 
guished guests/panels are invited to participate in dia- 
logue sessions relating contemporary hot topics and 
lessons learned. In addition, participants have the op- 
portunity to individually meet with and discuss areas 



49 



of interest with the principal decision makers in their 
Services and OSD. At the end of the 4 weeks, learners 
brief the results of their program assessments and 
plan for future actions. These briefs and all the previ- 
ous learning activities will support the participant's 
ability to quickly and effectively interact with all the 
major stakeholders. 

Although the College places responsibility for per- 
sonal learning squarely on the new PEO/PM/DPM, 
the LTM guides and supports the learner's efforts in 
completing as much of the learning plan as possible, 
including modifications to match emerging needs. Ad- 
ditionally, other DSMC faculty support these learning 
needs by facilitating group and individual learning ac- 
tivities. Included in the faculty teams will be Service 
experts who help pursue answers to Service-unique 
process questions. 

As a natural extension of the EPMC, participants may 
continue the relationship with the DSMC LTM/faculty 
through the Executive Continuous Education for Lead- 
ers (EXCEL) Program. The EXCEL program continues 
to promote the Assess-Plan-Do process by supporting 
the participant's program and associated individual 
learning requirement throughout each participant's 
tenure. 

COURSE ELIGIBILITY 
The College designed EPMC specifically to meet the 
learning and performance needs of PEOs and ACAT I 
and II PMs/DPMs. Allied and industry students are eli- 
gible to attend on a space-available basis. Successful 
completion of PMC or APMC is also a prerequisite. 


This course is required for personnel selected as a 
PEO, PM, or DPM in an ACAT I or II program. 


Executive Refresher Course 

[DSMC-2] Continuins Education Course 

W hile certain program management prin- 
ciples and functions are revisited, this 
executive-level course focuses upon 
change and paradigm reconstruction to 
provide participants with current informa- 
tion and knowledge on evolving acquisi- 
tion policies and lessons learned. The leadership role 
required for effective acquisition management in a 
changing world is examined. The 2-week Executive 
Refresher Course (ERC) directs attention to DoD initia- 
tives where implementation has a profound effect 
upon the acquisition environment, and promotes an 
understanding of the perspectives of acquisition lead- 
ers from the legislative and executive branches, and 
defense industry. Guest speakers lead discussions on 
hot topics such as reform initiatives, resource alloca- 
tion, performance specifications, the industrial base, 
earned value, cost as an independent variable, inte- 
grated process and product development, and inte- 
grated product teams. Class discussions promote 
government and industry partnering as a vehicle to 
encourage those management practices that reduce 
costs while promoting sound acquisition manage- 
ment. 

COURSE ELIGIBILITY 
The ERC is open only to graduates of the Program 
Management Course (PMC) and Advanced Program 
Management Course (APMC) who are or have been

ing standards, cost principles, cost monitoring, con- 
tract administration, and ethical principles. The use of 
"Decisions" (Armed Services Board of Contract Ap- 
peals, Court of Claims, and others), is an important 
part of this course; the complex accounting issues 
make coverage of these cases beyond the scope of 
those integrated into applicable cost accounting stan- 
dards, cost principles, and in a few cases, generally 
accepted accounting principles. 

COURSE ELIGIBILITY 
The College recommends OMDCC for personnel as- 
signed or selected for program projects in which con- 
tractor overhead management situations are present 
and are important elements of costs. Completion of 
all Level I courses is recommended. Course work or 
background in cost accounting is desired. 


he 2-week Program Managers Survival Course 
(PMSC) builds on the general program manage- 
ment competencies acquired during previous 
attendance at the Program Management 
Course or Advanced Program Management 
Course, and subsequent on-the-job experience. 
As designed, PMSC provides participants with an op- 
portunity to assess their program and personal skills, 
update their knowledge, and examine lessons learned 
from other recent programs. A principal focus of the 
PMSC is use of the survival skills necessary to effec- 
tively manage a DoD acquisition program. 

Each participant will complete a self-assessment 30 
days prior to the course. Areas of concentration are: 
the status of their assigned programs; personal 
strengths and weaknesses in relation to problems, is- 
sues and concerns of their programs; and impacts 
that may result from recent policy changes in system 
acquisition. The assessment process will result in a 
draft learning plan that can be used to structure the 
course for maximum benefit to each participant. Each 
Program Manager/Deputy Program Manager (PM/ 
DPM) should meet with their future PM or Program 
Executive Officer for guidance on areas of specific 
interest. 



This is an Assignment-specific course for personnel 
assigned to program projects in which contractor 
overhead situations are present. 



Additionally, students are encouraged to visit the of- 
fices of matrix organizations. Defense Program Repre- 
sentatives, labs, contractors, and officials of the 
Service and Office of the Secretary of Defense. The 
outcome of this activity will be a personally tailored 
learning plan or contract that is based on current pro- 
gram issues and related program management com- 
petency needs. The learning plan provides a 
"roadmap" that allows students to focus their energy 
and maximize their time each day. 

The course emphasizes an iterative "Assess-Plan-Do" 
process for program management and stresses the 
value of a team approach. During the 2 weeks at 
DSMC, the participant joins other prospective PMs 
and DPMs in a learning environment designed to ac- 
commodate individual learning styles while promot- 
ing group learning from peers. Core workshops will 
provide functional updates of policies and practices in 
areas considered critical for all future PMs/DPMs. Fa-

learned and how to deal with each situation as the 
PM. The latest management techniques and survival 
skills are an integral part of the discussions. The 
course includes two elective periods that afford the 
PM/DPM the opportunity to explore selected subjects 
in detail. A PM discussion panel is scheduled for Fri- 
day of Week 2 to explore in real-time, situations pre- 
sented by current program managers.

Systems Acquisition 
Management for 
General/Flag Officers 
Course 

[DSMC-1] Continuing Education Course 

his 1-week senior, executive-level course fo- 
cuses on understanding the perspectives and 
positions of current key decision makers from 
the legislative and executive branches of gov- 
ernment and the defense industry. The Systems 
Acquisition Management for General/Flag Of- 
ficers Course (SAMC) concept and design includes the 
most recent topics that will, or may, affect the 
weapon systems acquisition environment. The Col- 
lege designed the General/Flag Officers Course for in- 
dividuals who are not graduates of the DSMC 
Program Management Course or Advanced Program 
Management Course to provide a policy and execu- 
tive level context relative to the acquisition program 
management community. 

The course explores how participants can better sup- 
port, guide, or oversee acquisition programs. Partici- 
pants interact directly with senior leadership to 
benefit from their insight on current policy and acqui- 
sition initiatives. Specific discussion is directed to the 
most recent legislative and executive actions affecting 
weapon systems acquisition. In addition, the course 
focuses attention on current DoD policy and proce- 
dural initiatives, for which implementation is having, 
or will have, a profound effect upon the weapon sys- 
tem acquisition management environment. 

Each 1-week course is uniquely tailored so that the 
schedule provides congressional perspectives cover- 
age by a Member of Congress or an appropriate con- 


gressional staff member. Defense industry perspec- 
tives are shared concerning the government as a mar- 
ketplace and the resultant corporate objectives, 
principles and strategies. Executives from the Office of 
the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and its implementing 
agencies address acquisition management policy, re- 
source allocation policy, as well as procedures and ini- 
tiatives contemplated, planned, or underway. Senior 
civilian and military managers from the Military Ser- 
vices describe insights concerning their acquisition 
policies. Program executive officers describe acquisi- 
tion procedures implemented in keeping with the cur- 
rent policies. 

Also, program managers relate how they are answer- 
ing the challenge presented within the resources 
given, how resources are being used, what issues re- 
main, and what lessons can be learned. In facilitated 
discussions on current issues, faculty members ad- 
dress government contracting procedures and re- 
source allocation processes and their impact upon 
government and industry relationships. Recent ses- 
sions addressed such hot topics as DoD reorganiza- 
tion and consolidation; acquisition reform; 
downsizing; quality initiatives; industrial-base issues; 
environmental concerns and requirements; "earned 
value"; computer software acquisition; life-cycle sup- 
port; and cost as an independent variable. 

COURSE ELIGIBILITY 
This is an optional course open to military general/ 
flag officers and senior executive service civilians, 
who are working in positions requiring an under- 
standing and working knowledge of DoD systems ac- 
quisition. Additionally, participants of equivalent rank 
from the defense industry and other federal agencies 
are admitted on a space-available basis. A Secret se- 
curity clearance is required for all participants.

Additional Educational 
Opportunities 


esides our regular course offerings, the College 
also sponsors additional educational oppor- 
tunities. The following courses are specially 
designed to meet individual and organiza- 
tionally unique education or issue require- 
ments. 

DEFENSE SYSTEMS ACQUISITION 
MANAGEMENT COURSE (DSAMC) 

The College designed DSAMC for defense industry 
program managers and mid-management level per- 
sonnel from industry who desire a thorough introduc- 
tion in the policies and procedures unique to the 
management of defense acquisition programs. Ac- 
cordingly, the DSAMC objective is to provide industry 
students with a better understanding of the acquisi- 
tion management environment of their government 
counterparts. 

Sponsored by the American Defense Preparedness 
Association (ADPA), the DSAMC is taught by DSMC 
under the provisions of a Memorandum of Under- 
standing between the College and the Association. A 
series of case studies and executive-level guest speak- 
ers from government and industry augment the lec- 
ture and discussion. 




The course may be offered up to four times a year, 
depending on demand; course dates are advertised 
by ADPA. The College opens the course to a limited 
number of military officers in grades 0-4 and above, 
and government civilians in grades GS-13 and above. 
Although the DSAMC does not satisfy any of the man- 
datory course requirements for DoD employees speci- 
fied in DoD 5000. 52-M, "Career Development 
Program for Acquisition Personnel," it does afford ex- 
perienced DoD personnel an excellent opportunity to 
update their knowledge of the latest developments in 
defense acquisition policies, processes, and proce- 
dures. 

CORRESPONDENCE OFFERINGS 
The College is positioning itself to serve more custom- 
ers in the future in more ways. Toward that end, we 
offer three individual study program courses by corre- 
spondence: Basic Software Acquisition Management 
Course (BSAMC), SAM 101 (available summer 1993); 
Contract Performance Management Fundamentals 
Course (CPMFC), BFM 102; and Systems Acquisition 
Funds Management Course (SAFMC), BFM 201. These 
courses are fully described in the "Course Descrip- 
tions" section of this Catalog. (Please note that SAM 
101 is offered by correspondence oniy, and is ex- 
pected to be available by November 1996. The other 
two offerings - BFM 102 and BFM 201 - are offered 
in-residence as well as by correspondence.) 

EQUIVALENCY EXAMINATION 
In FY 97 DSMC will offer an ACQ-201, Intermediate 
Systems Acquisition Course (ISAC) Equivalency Exami- 
nation. Applicants for the Equivalency Exam must 
meet the DoD 5000. 52-M requirements for their ca- 
reer fieid in aii respects except training.

DSMC Vision 


We are the academy of distinction promoting systems management excellence. 


DSMC Mission 

We promote and support the adoption and practice of sound systems management principles 
by the acquisition workforce through education, research, consulting, and information dissemi- 
nation. 


DSMC Values 

We support, respect, and trust each other. We are all responsible for customer satisfaction. We 
take pride in our work and pursue excellence in what we do. 


DSMC Emblem 

Leadership, Scholarship, Management 

The emblem of the Defense Systems Management College was devised in 1971. Its three stars 
represent the Departments of the Army, Navy, and the Air Force; together they suggest the joint- 
Service nature of DSMC. The stars are superimposed on the outline of a pentagon, which sug- 
gests the jurisdiction of the Department of Defense. The three-division shield, upon which the 
stars and pentagon rest, suggests the three-part school mission. Translated, the emblem's motto 
reads, "Leadership, Scholarship, Management."
