The Army acquisition population is diverse and crosses 13 Acquisition Career Fields (ACFs). The Army DACM Office has developed Career Models for each ACF which are intended as notional guides for professional growth and a well-rounded ACF experience. Not every opportunity presented on the models is required, nor suited for everyone. Within the models, courses/programs are hyperlinks which connect to dedicated website pages for each course/program where additional information may be found. Acquisition workforce employees, along with their supervisors, should use these models as tools for developing a plan to advance throughout one’s acquisition career. Additional information on the ACFs may be found may be found in the DAU icatalog.
