Federal Acquisition Institute Vendor Meeting
The Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI) will hold a vendor meeting to provide information on the recently announced Federal Acquisition Certification in Program/Project Management (FAC-P/PM) to include program details, target timeline, and opportunities for vendors to support the training of federal program and project managers. The purpose of this certification program is to establish the competencies, training, and experience requirements for program and project managers in civilian agencies. The FAC-P/PM focuses on essential competencies needed for program and project managers; the program does not include functional or technical competencies, such as those for information technology, or agency-specific competencies. The certification requirements will be accepted by, at minimum, all civilian agencies as evidence that an employee meets the core competencies, training and experience requirements. The FAC-P/PM is a new program announced by the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) on April 25, 2007. At this vendor meeting, FAI will present its approach for partnering with vendors on this initiative.
