DAU Alumni Association sponsors research paper competition.

The Defense Acquisition University Alumni Association (DAUAA), in partnership with the DAU Research Department, is sponsoring a research paper competition. The winners will be announced at the DAUAA Symposium in April 2008.

This competition and the 2008 symposium will:

* award $1,000 to the first prize winner, $500 to the second prize winner

* enhance the professional stature of DoD acquisition, and officially recognize outstanding research efforts within the acquisition community

* facilitate learning and knowledge sharing in conjunction with the theme of the annual DAU Acquisition Community Symposium

* generate author recognition of acquisition-related research studies/articles for future publication in the Defense Acquisition Review Journal (ARJ).

Ground Rules

* The competition is open to anyone interested in the DoD acquisition system and is not limited to government or contractor personnel.

* Employees of the federal government (including military personnel) are encouraged to compete and are eligible for cash awards unless the paper was researched or written as part of the employee's official duties or was done on government time. If the research effort is performed as part of official duties or on government time, the employee would be eligible for a noncash prize, i.e., certificate and donation of cash prize to a Combined Federal Campaign-registered charity of winner's choice.

* The format of the paper must be in accordance with guidelines for articles submitted for the Defense Acquisition Review Journal, which can be found on the DAU Web site at <>.

* The theme for 2008 is: "Defense Life Cycle Management: Sustaining DoD Weapons Systems." (Please note that this is related to and part of the theme of the 2008 DAU Acquisition Community Symposium and the theme of the 2nd Quarter Issue of Defense Acquisition Review Journal.)

* Papers should be submitted to the DAU director of research: Dr. Paul Alfieri, 703-805-5282 or
