Technical Articles

This month's technical articles are posts from the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) website.

DAU is rolling out specialized credentials that will recognize Defense Acquisition Workforce members for completing training and demonstrating a proficient application of acquisition skills, placing an emphasis on learning that is about performance, not just knowledge.

While all the pathways are important, this article addresses the Urgent Capability and Middle Tier Acquisition (MTA) pathways.
