FROM THE ARMY DACM OFFICE

ANNUAL ETHICS TRAINING

  • As of Nov. 30, only 35.9 percent of the Army Acquisition Workforce (AAW) had completed the annual ethics training requirement. CAPPMIS will only capture ethics completion if an AAW professional has either CLM 003, ETH003, MAN-ETH16, 2016 Acquisition Ethics, or the word “Ethics” in the course title from Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2016. Less than 30 days remain to ensure the AAW meets this Office of the Secretary of Defense mandate.
