Course Update

​ACQ 380 (International Acquisition Management) is DAU's Level III Int'l Acquisition Career Path (IACP) course.  DoD acquisition workforce members receive a DAU Certification of Successful Completion of IACP Level III Training upon graduation from ACQ 380.  ACQ 380 graduates to date have enjoyed this participative, practical exercise/case study-based course and rated it very highly. 

Unfortunately the planned ACQ 380 offering at Fort Belvoir, VA scheduled for the end of February 2019 has been cancelled due to "low fill" (not enough students).  Please consider signing up for the May 2019 offering as soon as possible.

2) Provide current information on the U.S. Government/DoD implementation policies that have been issued since these NDAAs were passed by Congress and signed into law by the President.

​A revised version of DoD Directive 2040.03 that covers DoD-wide policy and procedures regarding signature of foreign End Use Certificates (EUCs) by DoD personnel was published on August, 31, 2018.  

Foreign governments use EUCs to control subsequent DoD re-transfer of defense articles acquired from their government or their companies to Third Party nations or companies.  DoDD 2040.03 provides policy guidance -- as well as the requirement for higher level DoD approvals in certain circumstances -- that all DoD Components must comply with regarding EUC signature on behalf of the DoD and USG.
