The Federal Acquisition Certification for Program and Project Managers (FAC-P/PM) is governed by the April 25, 2007 OFPP Memo on the Federal Acquisition Certification for Program and Project Managers Representatives.
This certification program is based upon a competency model of performance outcomes which measures the knowledge, skills and abilities gained by program and project managers through professional training, education, job experience and continuous learning.
The FAC-PPM certification program certifies program and project managers at three levels: Entry, Mid, and Senior. Training, experience and continuous learning requirements are cumulative through each level. A workforce member with no prior FAC-PPM certification can become certified at any level, but must demonstrate achievement of all performance outcomes in the competency model for that certification level either through training or experience. To find out more information about the requirements for each level, please refer to the table below.
