The MAPL synchronizes DAWIA (10 U.S. Code § 1722) and the Army’s force management process. The MAPL is a force structure tool and not a list of available positions. The Acquisition Officers official document for available Acquisition positions is the Assignment Preference Sheet (APS). Typically, your Acquisition Management Branch (AMB) Assignment Officer will provide the APS to you 6-9 months before your scheduled move. Based on the Director Acquisition Career Management (DACM) assignment guidance and the incumbents Year and Month Availability (YMAV), the APS lists assignments available for a particular cycle.
