  1. I'm drafting some thoughts/recommendations on improving training for the contracting workforce and I'd like to solicit input from those of you who frequent these forums. Specifically, I'd like to know what each of you think are the "breakdown activities" for our workforce. "Breakdown activities" are defined as those "tasks that differentiate high and low performers." The term comes from an article in Harvard Business Review that I read last month - for those of you interested in the complete article, you can read it here: To Better Train Workers, Figure Out Where They Struggl
  2. We are looking into the possibility of sponsoring a PWS writing class for our Government customers. Does anyone want to recommend a good contractor? Would DAU come to our location and provide training?
  3. There is a training requirement of $50K that will be attended by 10 Government employees from various offices. My argument is that the requirement is each individual person attending this class, with a separate SF182. The micro-purchase threshold for training is $25K. If the class is being split into multiple purchases because the class is the requirement I would say that is a split, but my assertion is that the requirement is each individual SF-182 and that 10 credit card swipes of $2,500 is not splitting the purchase and should be acceptable. Please give me your thoughts.
  4. I would like your opinions to brainstorm ways that acquisition-related training can be improved. A few months ago, Jamaal had created a post concerning improvements to the acquisition systems; one of those items was training. I believe that improving training is an attainable opportunity this year. It is unlikely that we will see an overhaul of acquisition training system, but there are smaller changes that I think could enhance the major goals of training: 1) improving job performance; 2) measuring effectiveness; 3) determining future training needs. I recently took a training course from an
  5. This may be a question for my specific organization, but I'll see if any of you will be able to answer. I'm converting to a full-time Contract Specialist position in a couple of weeks. I started as a co-op in mid-June of 2011. Here are my questions: 1) Am I allowed to take DAWIA training immediately (i.e.: CON-090)? I thought I had recieved information stating that you must be an 1102 for at least 1 year before starting the DAWIA training. 2) Would there be value in taking CON-090 as soon as I can (to help with learning the position)? 3) (and this is the main question...) Are you required to
  6. Question: If a large privately held company that mostly does private construction work but may have a federal government contract or subcontract once in a while (that triggers 3.10 Code of Business Conduct and Training) train all of its employees or just the ones that are working on federal goverment projects. Also, what if the employees are incidental to the project such as a trucker or a janitor. I have reviewed the Code and Federal Sentencing Guidelines but it does not answer the question. I believe that all employees must be trained but I was wondering if there is a FAR or other regula
  7. To all you veteran Contract professionals, How long did it take you to feel comfortable with your positions ("comfortable" as in not having any more "I have no idea what I'm doing" moments)? I've been in contracting for 3 months and still feel totally clueless on how to do this job, where to start, and where to even look for answers. Is this really just a learn-as-you-go position? It seems like there should be a significant amount of training, but (aside from DAU, which I am not eligible to take yet) there is none. If so, I'll just keep on trucking but I would really like to educate myself
