The Senior Service College (SSC) Program offers a unique opportunity for members of the Army Acquisition Corps (AAC), military and civilians to gain advanced leadership training and experience specifically designed for senior leadership positions.
General Program Information:
The curriculum is a broad-based national security decision-making for senior policy makers, and a master’s degree in National Security and Strategic Studies is awarded upon graduation. The AAC is allocated seven civilian acquisition slots annually for senior acquisition professionals (GS-14/15 or pay/broadband equivalent), and its selection is competitive through a Department of the Army board process.
The Vice Chief of Staff instituted a policy for placement of civilian SSC graduates, which began with Academic Year 2003-2004. The SSC graduates are matched to key leadership positions (at the same grade), which require advanced leadership education. G-1 is the proponent for this centrally managed program, the Graduate Placement Program. USAASC provides funding for travel and per diem of acquisition personnel selected each year for ICAF. The program offers a unique opportunity for members of the AAC, military and civilians to gain advanced leadership training and experience.
Applicants interested in applying for ICAF should review the procedures at http://cpol.army.mil/library/train/catalog/ch02icaf.html.
