Abstract : Public Law 101-510, Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA) became effective upon its passage for Fiscal Year 1992. The intent of the legislation is to increase the training and professionalism of the Department of Defense Acquisition Workforce. The DAWIA outlines special requirements and qualifications for various specialties within the General Series (GS) workforce and stat requirements for the qualifications of military personnel who are filling acquisition billets. This thesis will focus on the Marine Officers currently working in the acquisition workforce. It will look at how they are accessed and trained within the workforce. It will also look at current care progression and makes recommendations as to how the current acquisition workforce structure should modified in order to remain viable well into the next century.
