FORT BELVOIR, Va. (Feb. 8, 2022)—The new “Back-to-Basics” talent management framework is finally here. “My team has been working diligently behind the scenes for more than a year to prepare for this change,” said Rob Richardson, the director of acquisition career management (DACM). “The new framework reflects the need to provide flexibility so that we are best equipped to respond to diverse and changing demands. It will allow training to be tailored to individual skillsets and organizational mission needs. It will prioritize on-the-job experience and reduce the time spent on in-person training. Bottom line: The new DAWIA framework will strengthen and empower our workforce.” Read more about this major milestone for the Army acquisition community in the February 2022 edition of the DACM Newsletter.
