Abstract : The Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (10 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) was enacted on November 5,1990. The act was intended to professionalize the acquisition workforce of the Department of Defense (DOD) by establishing specific requirements for education, training, and experience that were to take effect over a 3-year period, beginning October 1991. The act permits DOD officials to waive specific qualification requirements if (1) unusual circumstances justify awaiver or (2) an individual's qualifications obviate the need for meeting the requirements. Also, it required that, through 1998, our office annually report on DOD'S compliance with the act's waiver provisions.
