16. Description - FAI is charged with promoting the development of a professional acquisition workforce. FAI is responsible for delivering and promoting the delivery by other CFO Act and SAC agencies with world-class, innovative, and results-oriented training programs, professional development opportunities, job performance aids, continuous learning courses, and other activities designed to help civilian acquisition personnel effectively accomplish their assigned job duties and critical missions. FAI sponsors courses leading to professional certification in compliance with the Federal Acquisition Certification - Contracting (FAC-C), the Federal Acquisition Certification - Contracting Officer's Representative (FAC-COR), and the Federal Acquisition Certification - Program/Project Management (FAC-P/PM) policies. While FAI sponsors certification training courses, it cannot provide all of the required training for the CFO Act and SAC agencies' acquisition workforce. It is the responsibility of the individual CFO Act and SAC agencies to ensure that their acquisition workforce receives the necessary FAC training leading to professional certification for FAC-C, FAC-COR, and/or FAC-P/PM. The resultant IDIQ contracts will ensure that FAI, the CFO Act, and SAC agencies have a flexible, comprehensive FAC training course vehicle in which to order COR, P/PM, and Elective courses at the best possible quality and price.
The purpose of this requirement is to award IDIQ multiple award contracts for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) courses to be used by the Federal acquisition workforce for FAC-COR and FAC-P/PM certification as well as four Elective courses (base year) and seven Elective courses (option years). The contracts may be used by the 24 CFO Act Agencies and the agencies under the Small Agency Council (approximately 99 small agencies) to order acquisition workforce training.
The scope of this contract includes all training required to develop a professional acquisition workforce. The areas of training cover Federal Acquisition Certification - Contracting Officer's Representative (FAC-COR) certification and elective courses, Federal Acquisition Certification - Program/Project Management (FAC-P/PM) certification and elective courses, and general acquisition elective courses.
