Defense Acquisition University Midwest Region (July 18, 2005): DAU Midwest Region and U.S. Army TACOM LCMC sign learning organization agreement.
Signing the agreement were Army Maj. Gen. William Lenaers, commander, TACOM LCMC, Warren, Mich., and Gerald Emke, dean, DAU Midwest Region, Kettering, Ohio. Also present at the signing were Carl D. Hayden, associate dean of academics, DAU Midwest Region; Katherine Bell, assistant chief of staff for personnel, TACOM G1; Rick Bradley, chief, TACOM Learning Center; Nancy W. Deming, TACOM training coordinator; and Dr. Donald McKeon, professor, DAU Midwest TACOM Satellite Office.
The TACOM LCMC learning organization is a cooperative effort that provides learning support and knowledge management to members of the TACOM LCMC community. Currently, the DAU Midwest Region satellite office in Warren, Mich., staffed by two DAU professors, provides and coordinates training, site-specific performance support consulting, and classroom training. Twenty-eight DAU classes, five systems engineering workshops, and nine performance-based service acquisition workshops (specially, tailored for TACOM) are scheduled for fiscal 2006.
Acquisition Insight Day
The Acquisition Insight Day held on Aug. 17 at the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) auditorium and at TACOM's training facilities was the first of many events brought about as a result of the learning organization agreement. It provided the nearly 18,000-member acquisition workforce at TACOM the opportunity to learn of the new DoD initiatives. DAU Midwest Region faculty, with faculty support also from DAU Capital and Northeast Region and DAU West Region, provided seminars on the new initiatives and updates on existing ones.
Hayden is the associate dean of academics for DAU Midwest Region.
