KEEPING SCORE – ONLY FOUR MONTHS LEFT TO REACH 80 CONTINUOUS LEARNING POINTS (CLPs)
Career learning is a crucial ongoing part of being a responsible acquisition professional. Whether it’s on-the-job training, peer-to-peer knowledge sharing or self-study, there are plenty of ways to stay sharp. With over 300 continuous learning module (CLM) offerings, DAU makes online learning fast and convenient. Most CLMs take only a few hours to complete—try one today!
CLC 043 “Defense Priorities and Allocations System” – The goal of the Defense Priorities and Allocations System (DPAS) module is to ensure that government and industry users are thoroughly familiar with the priorities and allocations authority of the Defense Production Act. It also reveals the purpose of DPAS, which is to assure the timely availability of industrial resources to meet current and future national security and emergency preparedness requirements.
PMT 0170 “Risk Management” – Risk is always a concern in the DOD systems acquisition process. The acquisition process itself is designed, to a large degree, to allow risk to be managed from conception to delivery of the system. Although risk is inherent in any program, risk management ensures managers take measures to assess and handle risks. This module focuses on tools and processes that can be used to manage risk on a defense system acquisition project.
All acquisition workforce professionals are responsible for meeting the mandatory 80 CLP requirement every two years. The current two-year cycle ends on September 30. The complete CLM catalog can be found HERE.

You will continue to use CAPPMIS to complete career management actions. Users should update browser bookmarks to the new CAMP URL.
