The Contracting Professional School provides the existing VA acquisition workforce with the core courses necessary to obtain the Office of Federal Procurement Policy’s (OFPP) Federal Acquisition Certification in Contracting (FAC-C) Levels I, II, and III. Additionally, specialized tracks are offered in Construction and Leasing.
The school has worked with training vendors to incorporate civilian and VA-specific case studies and examples in our training to increase relevance. Examples are practical and create a meaningful theory-to-practice connection.
The school takes a holistic approach to complement the core technical contracting courses with leadership, writing, and interpersonal skills training. This approach is aligned with that offered through our other schools and ensures an integrated and synergistic curriculum that leverages the strengths of the entire acquisition team.
