Abstract: This project will study the acquisition educational path for Army MOS 51 series program management and contracting officers to identify the optimized professional and military pathway to produce qualified Program Managers and Contracting Officers. Using qualitative research in the form of multiple case studies as a research design, this project will focus on the value of merging the acquisition foundation course (AFC) and intermediate level education (ILE) with an accredited professional education program to produce the most qualified Acquisition Officer. This study advances the level of insight into these issues and establishes the foundation for future research.
