Emphasis on Human Capital

Broadly Defining the Workforce

  • The Services Acquisition Reform Act (SARA) defines acquisition broadly to include functions other than traditional contracting (management and measurement of performance, tech and mgmt direction, etc.)

  • Policy Letter gives Chief Acquisition Officers (CAOs) responsibility for identifying their workforce to include, at a minimum:

    • All GS-1102s

    • All warranted Contracting Officers (COs) regardless of series

    • All GS-1105s

    • Program and project managers, as identified by the CAO

    • All CORs and COTRs

    • Any acquisition-related position identified by the CAO
