2015 U.S. Army Acquisition Awards

After extensive review, the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics and Technology) (OASA(ATL)) is realigning the Army Acquisition Awards program so that it more closely mirrors the functions and organization of today’s acquisition community. The opening of the call for submissions for the 2015 Army Acquisition Awards will therefore be postponed. This postponement ONLY applies to the Army Acquisition Awards. OASA(ATL) will announce the updated awards program in the near future to recognize the great performance of our workforce.
