Professional Services Council signs partnership agreement with Defense Acquisition University.
PSC is the leading advocate on legislative and regulatory policies and practices that affect the government professional and technical services industry. The council represents more than 185 companies of all business sizes that provide services--including information technology, engineering, logistics, operations and maintenance, consulting, international development, scientific, environmental, and social sciences--to virtually every agency of the federal government. Its primary mission is to improve, expand, and protect the federal marketplace for services providers. PSC is an effective advocate on a full range of procurement policy, cutsourcing, and business-related issues affecting professional services at the federal level. In addition to working with Congress, the association forges and maintains partnerships and collaborations with numerous federal agencies and components to identify practical solutions to strategic and business challenges facing the government.
Currently, DAU classes do not provide detailed information about Services' acquisition practices. To address that void, the goal of the DAU-PSC partnership is to promote understanding and improvement in services acquisition practices that will enhance government and contractor communication, collaboration, and effectiveness on government programs. The DAU-PSC partnership, which was coordinated by DAU's Industry Chair, Navy Rear Adm. (Ret) Lenn Vincent, will seek to identify key areas associated with the procurement and management of professional services for inclusion in DAU course offerings and other training opportunities.
