WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, OHIO (AFIT) – "SYS 120 - Teaming With DCMA" is a funded, two-day course exploring the current Acquisition Management System and is being offered through the Air Force Institute of Technology’s School of Systems and Logistics at the AFIT/LS Kettering campus May 5-6 and May 12-13. 

SYS 120 is an excellent opportunity for junior- to mid-level professionals needing to increase understanding of the acquisition process and raise awareness methods to enhance interaction with critical support agencies. 

The course offers 16 continuous learning points to second lieutenant through major, staff sergeant through chief master sergeant and GS-7 through GS-13 in diverse disciplines to include acquisition, program management, finance, engineering, technical, logistical, and contracting.

The two-day course will explore the current Acquisition Management System and how communication and teaming can reduce risk, improve system acquisition and enhance sustainment by educating students on the capabilities of the Defense Contract Management Agency, Defense Contract Audit Agency and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service. 

Guest lecturers will provide insight into roles, organizations, responsibilities and support capabilities of agencies providing critical support in the total life cycle management in the context of system Pre-Award, Post-Award and Contract Close Out processes.

SYS 120 will enable students to engage experts in identifying key support concepts to manage a dynamic environment where changes in technology, regulations, and business processes confront Air Force personnel.  Each expert seeks to teach concepts to tame runaway costs, control schedules and ensure critical performance of new and existing systems. The course capstone project allows the students to apply solutions to real-world problems impacting Air Force acquisition and sustainment.
