International Test and Evaluation Association partners with Defense Acquisition University.

On July 7, Dr. Jim McMichael, vice president of the DAU and Gary L. Bridgewater, president of the International Test and Evaluation Association (ITEA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to share a mutual commitment to excellence in the training and education of the test and evaluation (T & E) professional community. Among other initiatives, the agreement includes sharing of training resources and collaboration on T & E training opportunities.

Dr. John D. Claxton, DAU program director for T & E curriculum will be working closely with the ITEA staff headed by Alan Plishker, the ITEA executive director, in the implementation of the MOU provisions. The signing of the MOU follows closely upon the Defense Acquisition University's joining many other commercial and defense industry organizations in their commitment as corporate members of ITEA.

ITEA is a not-for-profit educational organization founded in 1980 to further the exchange of technical information in the field of test and evaluation. Its international members include professionals from industry, government, and academia, who are involved in the development and application of policy and techniques used to assess the effectiveness, reliability, and safety of new and existing systems and products. The association provides an ongoing program of workshops, symposia, short courses, awards, and scholarships. Many of ITEA's events contribute to the continuous learning required of the Department of Defense acquisition workforce.
