OFPP Memo Mandates Agencies Use Central Acquisition Workforce Training Info Repository

ContractSigningThe Office of Federal Procurement Policy has directed civilian agencies to use a central repository maintained by the Federal Acquisition Institute that contains training and certification info on acquisition workers.

Increased use of the Federal Acquisition Institute Training Application System is intended to give both the FAI and OFPP a government-wide view of human capital initiatives that aim to strengthen the acquisition workforce, OFPP Administrator Joe Jordan said in the memo issued Tuesday.

By Jan. 1, agency chief financial officers covered under the CFO Act will have to enter information on acquisition workers into the database.

Civilian agencies will be required to use FAITAS as their training registration system for agency-provided acquisition training by Oct. 1 and OFPP set that deadline to give agencies time to register workers for classes if space is available.

In between those dates, OFPP set an April 1 deadline for agencies to use FAITAS to apply for certification of acquisition workers and a June 1 deadline to use the system for tracking workers’ credentials.
