Agency, university sign CCM agreement

By Patrick Tremblay DCMA Public Affairs

FORT LEE, Va. — Air Force Lt. Gen. Wendy Masiello, Defense Contract Management Agency director, and James Woolsey, Defense Acquisition University president, signed a memorandum of agreement here August 15 to formalize their organizations’ continued strategic partnership through the College of Contract Management. 

“We celebrate the work our teams have gone through to put this document together,” said Masiello. “We also celebrate the future as we continue to work together to prepare our workforce for the challenges ahead.”

Woolsey echoed Masiello’s appreciation for the work done to finalize the agreement. “DCMA has a very important mission. DAU is happy to be able to provide your workforce with tools and training developed specifically to help them with the challenges they face every day.” 

The MOA comes nearly three years after a similar agreement was signed by former organizational leaders establishing the CCM. Since that time, DAU has built the college’s staff, who are now developing and fielding courses designed specifically to meet the needs of the DCMA workforce.

As outlined in the memorandum, the agency’s point of contact for the relationship is Kathy Butera as the executive director of Human Capital. "I am very pleased with the great working relationship and partnership that we have established with the college,” said Butera. “Together we have been able to offer an increasingly professional level of coursework to our employees."

DAU’s point of contact is Kurt Stonerock, the dean of the college. 

“We’re getting very positive reviews from students who have taken courses the college has already fielded, and we now have over 30 more courses in development,” said Stonerock. “By continuing to build those courses in close partnership with our DCMA functional counterparts, I’m confident they are going to be just as well-received by front-line DCMA acquisition professionals.”
