Office of Procurement Policy Eyes Modernized Acquisition Workforce, Data Sharing

The Office of Federal Procurement Policy is looking to support its acquisition personnel in 2024 and beyond.

Christine Harada, senior adviser at OFPP, said the White House wants to ensure that agencies’ acquisition staff are sufficiently trained and supported, Federal News Network reported Monday.

Harada told Federal News Network in an interview that supporting such personnel will require “modern training and development opportunities” that allow for networking and community building.

She described the Federal Acquisition Certification in Contracting’s new federal contracting officer training process as transformative because it standardizes competencies between the Pentagon and civilian agencies, allowing employees to have mobility across organizations.

According to Harada, feedback on the FAC-C update has been positive. She said that over 700 people have undergone the training so far and that those with the legacy certification automatically received the new one.

Harada added that the OFPP is also focused on enhancing its data approach. The office is asking for comments on a proposed circular that would task agencies with creating tools and processes to facilitate acquisition data sharing.
