The purpose of the Functional Services Manager (FSM) credential is to develop a highly qualified diverse workforce capable of performing current and future DoD service acquisition (SA) functions. The FSM needs to have a working knowledge of DoDI 5000.74 Defense Acquisition of Services, the policy and best practices therein.

An emphasis is placed on helping the FSM to think critically and make better decisions as they confront the myriad of complex situations encountered in services acquisitions.

Estimated time to complete this credential is 41 hours. Earn up to 45 CLPs.
