The Deputy Director, Acquisition Career Management is responsible, by law, for the education and training of Army acquisition workforce members. A well-educated and trained Army acquisition workforce is crucial to supporting the Army’s current transformation. In keeping with this philosophy, the recurring goal remains to provide the best possible support and education to our Army acquisition workforce. School of Choice is the Army DACM’s premier tuition assistance program allowing the best and brightest workforce members the flexibility to attend school full-time in order to complete their degree.

For additional information please refer to the SOC Policy and Procedures at:

Policy and Procedures:


Due to resource constraints, the Army DACM Office will not be conducting a formal announcement for School of Choice in FY14. Should a command have an urgent need to send a high performing acquisition workforce member to obtain his/her Bachelor or Masters degree during duty-time, the Army DACM Office will consider funding. Please contact the AET Branch Chief, Mr. Scott Greene to discuss options.
