Abstract : This information handbook provides a single reference document for an Air Force office (the young lieutenant or cross-trainee) assigned to the contracting/manufacturing field (AFSC 65XX) or who would like to cross-train to the specialty. It is an update of ACSC project 83-1260 and is designed to incorporate the changes in the assignment process, the DoD Reorganization Act, and Congressionally mandated changes in the career management of personnel assigned to acquisition. It is designed to emphasize the idea that you are an Air Force officer first and foremost. The handbook describes the specialty, overviews field demographics, and discusses education and training, professional development, the assignment process, promotions, and career development considerations.
