VA Acquisition Academy
The Veteran Affairs Acquisition Academy (VAAA) was created in 2008 to address the growing acquisition workforce challenge facing the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Federal Government overall. With the downsizing from the last decade and the loss of institutional knowledge resulting from baby-boomer retirements, the acquisition workforce has been strained to keep pace with the increased amount of and complexities associated with outsourced work in support of the VA mission. In addition, oversight of the acquisition function across the entire Federal Government has grown dramatically in recent years.The academy was created to strengthen the acquisition workforce by training the entire acquisition team to include contracting professionals, program and project managers, contracting officer representatives, facility managers, and supply chain managers and logisticians using a holistic, competency-based, experiential training model.
