This Virtual Instructor-Led (VILT) course is designed to improve your tradecraft in the acquisition of services. It uses a multifunctional approach that provides acquisition team members with the tools and techniques necessary to analyze and apply performance-based principles when developing requirements documents and effective business strategies for contractor-provided services. The course uses the seven-step Service Acquisition process, a team-oriented approach, and multiple interactive, hands-on, learning sessions to apply the principles. ACQ 265 is designed for individuals who need to improve their skills in developing and defining service requirements, supporting business strategies, and effectively managing contractor performance. However, this course may also serve as an opportunity for experienced acquisition personnel to improve their understanding of the Service Acquisition Process.
