Peo aviation teams with DAU to facilitate developmental assignment at DAU South Region.

James McCullough, dean of Defense Acquisition University, South Region (DAU-S), and Paul Bogosian, program executive officer for aviation, have signed a memorandum of agreement to facilitate a developmental assignment position between the two organizations.

The developmental assignment initiative is a result of both organizations' membership in the Huntsville Acquisition Learning Organization, a federation of seven major acquisition commands in Huntsville, Ala. HALO promotes career-long learning and cultivates a motivated and agile acquisition, technology, and logistics workforce to extend the concept of learning beyond the classroom.

Steve Cosgray, a procurement analyst from the Apache Project Office, was selected to participate in the 18-month developmental assignment. Cosgray brings a wealth of experience from the field, and DAU-S benefits from having a highly qualified functional expert for 18 months with current real-life experiences to assist with course reengineering, research, teaching, and outreach.

At the conclusion of the developmental assignment period, PEO Aviation can expect a returning employee who will be better prepared to assume greater responsibilities and to contribute functionally and strategically to the organization.

For information on developmental assignments within DAU-S, e-mail Dr. Jerry Davis, associate dean for outreach and performance support, at jerry.davis@dau.mil. Information regarding the Huntsville Acquisition Learning Organization may be found at <http://acc.dau.mil/halo>.
