DAU signs memorandum of Agreement with Standard Procurement System Joint Program Management Office.

On Sept. 28, 2006, the Defense Acquisition University and the Standard Procurement System (SPS) Joint Program Management Office (JPMO) signed a Memorandum of Agreement that formalizes joint developments to better support the learning needs of the acquisition workforce. One of the more significant developments is the design and deployment of the SPS Process Performance and Learning Tool. The PPLT concept integrates formal learning assets and other resources into comprehensive job performance tools that not only support completing a specific task or process, but also provide learning as a secondary outcome.

Other developments will span across the AT & L Performance Learning Model to leverage existing resources and continue to provide the workforce community with the ability to "learn at the point of need." The partnership will also foster and promote mutual learning and job support development opportunities.
