This workshop is an outstanding opportunity for journeyman/senior- level cost practitioners to learn about issues and initiatives impacting their jobs as acquisition cost estimators. Due to the dynamic acquisition and cost estimating environments, along with cost estimators level cost practitioners to learn about issues and initiatives impacting their jobs as acquisition cost estimators, along with cost estimators’ busy schedules, cost analysts are challenged to keep up with the multitude of policy changes. This 2.5 day workshop covers many of the critical topics that impact accurate cost estimating. Topics will vary somewhat between each annual offering in order to address the most recent changes to policy and instruction. The workshop enables students to engage with various experts for the topics presented. Also, this workshop is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn from each other. Students benefit from exposure to the wide range of current topics in the acquisition and support arenas that helps them assess the impacts to their roles and responsibilities as cost estimators.
