If available/feasible, apply for a co-op during their Junior yearEnter in as a Junior/Senior if already in a 4 year schoolCombination of the above programsOnce an Undergraduate Degree is awarded, the student will be able to apply for jobs within Wright Patterson AFB, OH (ASC/AFRL/AFMC) at higher entry starting salaries than an applicant without the CON or LOG coursework (and co-op)Executive SummaryPotential PlayersDAU Strategic ConceptDAWIA Certification – 2 parts (education, experience)Partnership was established with Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, Macon State College, Warner Robins Aerospace Industry and the Defense Acquisition University.
8 Strategic Partnership Concept (cont) DAWIA Coursework ConsiderationsIn the event one of the partnering colleges/universities does not have the appropriate equivalency to teach DAWIA coursework, that partnering college/university will need to work with either DAU and/or Bellevue University for articulation so the student can receive credit towards their degree for taking the CON or LOG coursework online with Bellevue or DAUContact Ms. Lori Reed at for more information on Bellevue’s Accredited & DAWIA approved online Contracting courses (Bellevue does not have Logistics courses approved thru DAWIA)Partnership was established with Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, Macon State College, Warner Robins Aerospace Industry and the Defense Acquisition University.
9 Strategic Partnership Concept (cont) CareersStudents who meet all student eligibility requirements may be hired with a salary incentive(Co-Ops)Heightened understanding of Gov’t Contracting & LogisticsCertificationDegreeAll parties benefit from this initiative:Traditional college students looking for a great career – Robins AFB is the largest employer in the state of Georgia. Students who complete this concentration in contracting with a 3.0 GPA or higher may be hired by Robins AFB with a salary incentive which gives them a clear pathway to a highly professional job on the base.Industry partners also benefit from a heightened understanding of government contacting which in turn will help in shaping smart business arrangements.Macon State College gains an enhanced academic portfolio leading to more effective recruitment and job placement. RAFB largest employer in the state.DAU gains increased flexibility within a limited budget.AF gains students who walk through the base gate with a solid foundation of contracting knowledge for a successful career and avoids $13,500 of training costs per student.This partnership provides WRALC a pipeline for highly training candidates who can tackle the acquisition challenges of the future.The educational partnership represents an opportunity to improve and transform the way we do business.Increased flexibility within budget. Liaison available to discuss issues concerning DAWIA certification training.Enhanced academic portfolio for recruitment & job placement (CON & LOG Courses)

These recognized experts of the LCIC look across the entire curricula in each career field to ensure appropriate content, sequencing, and delivery.They closely interact with the DoD AT&L career field Functional Advisors and Functional Integrated Process Teams, who establish career field competencies, to develop training course content. They also work closely with the office of the USD (AT&L), Federal Agencies and industry to capture the latest initiatives and best practices and disseminate information to the workforce by a variety of means (e.g., the AKSS and various Communities of Practices [COPs] and Special Interest Areas [SIAs]).This chart shows the Core requirements for the Contracting Career Track established by the Contracting career field Functional Advisor.

Incorporation of Core Plus (see Appendix B, DAU Catalog for additional details)2. A requirement to complete two Continuous Learning Modules (CLM) for each of the three DAWIA Certification levels. For Level I, they are specified (CLL 008 Designing for Supportability in DoD Systems and CLL 011 Performance Based Logistics (PBL)). For Levels II and III, logistics personnel must complete two additional supervisor-employee agreed upon courses or continuous learning (CL) modules from the Core Plus list in the DAU Catalog.3. Course renumbering to eliminate A&B designations, to coincide with major distance learning course revisions in FY08. Four courses are being renumbered:LOG 235A becomes LOG 235 effective 1 Nov 07LOG 235B becomes LOG 236 effective 1 Nov 07LOG 201A becomes LOG 200 effective 1 Jan 08LOG 201B becomes LOG 201 effective 1 Jan 084. Although not reflected on this chart, LOG 304 is scheduled to be replaced with a new LOG 350 Enterprise Life Cycle Logistics Management course in the fourth quarter of FY08.The Life Cycle Logistics career field includes professionals responsible for planning, development, implementation, and management of an effective and affordable weapons, materiel, or information systems support strategies. Life cycle logisticians perform a principal joint and/or Component logistics role during the acquisition and operational phases of the system life cycle to: (1) ensure product support strategies meet the program goals for operational effectiveness and readiness; (2) ensure supportability requirements are addressed consistently with cost, schedule, and performance; (3) perform an integral role in systems engineering to ensure supportability considerations are implemented during systems design; and (4) plan and develop performance-based logistics initiatives as the preferred approach to product support. Life cycle logisticians ensure the integration of all support elements to maximize deployability, supportability, and mobility of the system throughout the program life cycle. They can work directly in a program management office, in support of the program manager, or in other supporting and sustainment logistics activity organizations.
