Target Attendees
DCMA Administrative Contracting Officer (ACO), Cost/Price Analyst, Contract Specialist, Contract Administrator (CA), Financial Analyst, or Technical Specialist (Engineer, Software, Industrial Specialist, or Quality Assurance Representative) assigned to TSN and Integrated Cost Proposal Evaluation
Prerequisite(s)
  • CMI 101, DCMA Multifunctional Orientation
  • CLC 056, Analyzing Contract Costs (required for Engineering, 08XX OCC Series)
  • CLC 058, Introduction to Contract Pricing (required for Contracting, 1102 OCC Series)

  • For other OCC Series, the prerequisites are recommend. Although these courses are stated for certain functional elements, supervisors will determine which individuals will be required to attend based on their functional specialty and information stated on the Individual Development Plan (IDP). For example, CLC 056 is listed as a prerequisite for Engineers; the Engineer is required to attend based on the specific career path of the Engineer, whereas a QAS may not be required to attend under normal circumstances of their job in DCMA, the QAS may be called upon to provide input to the TSN, and would therefore be required to complete CLC 056.
