4 Vision for NCMA Accreditation Advance Contract Management academic instruction quality through accreditation to serve students and their families, colleges and universities, sponsoring bodies, governments, and employers. Establish NCMA as the right entity to provide this service to the Contract Management profession –“The genius of this (U.S.) system is that, unlike other countries, we do not have mandatory national curricula for colleges; we do not have a national ministry of education that regulates academic standards; and students are free to choose the type of education that they pursue, depending on their ability, financial resources, and educational goals.” Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), Policy, p.17 4

5 Working Group Actions To Date Researched accreditation process including CHEA standards Talked to and researched PMI and ISM for insight Constructed a top-level accreditation flow of events to visualize the end-state Prepared a questionnaire and cover letter designed to: –Survey 35 Colleges and Universities Determine size of the potential “market” for accreditation services Confirm information on locations offering CM courses Obtain attitudinal information on the value of CM Accreditation Included a question on desirability of ANSI CM Standard –Generate initial interest in the academic community, e.g. CM accreditation is on the way and NCMA is leading the effort 5

10 Future Working Group Actions Recommend to the NCMA Executive Director (ED) and Board an approach to establishing the Implementation Group, including membership and support –Provide estimate of the timing and cost of the Implementation Group Identify legal steps required to reconfigure CMI as the “face” of the NCMA’s independent accreditation body –Need Jack Horan to investigate actions required to reconfigure CMI –Defining revenue flow and independence arrangements Work with PSE –Determine if NCMA should pursue establishing an ANSI Contract Management Standard –If pursuit of ANSI Standard is desired, determine proper timing within the process to establish an accreditation service 10

11 Future Working Group Actions (Continued) Suggest an approach to Accreditation staffing –Is the approval body a one or two-level process –In steady state – Who should serve on the CMI Accreditation Review Group (and CMAB, if separate entity)? –In steady state – How large would the CMAB Accreditation supporting staff be? Make recommendation on Accreditation fee approach and structure 11

12 Future Working Group Actions (Continued) Recommend how and when we engage the profession’s major stakeholders? e.g., –Benchmarking with other accrediting bodies –Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, BAE, etc. –OSD, Service, Agency contracting leadership –Universities offering CM specialty degrees –NCMA educational partners –NCMA membership –All acquisition professionals 12
