Revised FAC-P/PM Policy Memo Now Available

 

As part of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy’s (OFPP) October 2009 Acquisition Workforce Development Strategic Plan for Civilian Agencies, a multi-agency Functional Advisory Board (FAB) was established to refresh the P/PM competencies and recommend improvements to the certification standards. This updated FAC-P/PM reflects the recommendation from the FAB and input from the Chief Acquisition Officers Council (CAOC), Chief Information Officers Council (CIOC), the Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI), and other stakeholders. The revised program is designed to strengthen civilian agency P/PMs to improve program outcomes, and reflects the need to improve the management of high-risk, high-impact programs. The revised FAC-P/PM program went into effect on March 31, 2014, and is governed by the December 16, 2013 OFPP memo on Revisions to the Federal Acquisition Certification for Program and Project Managers (FAC-P/PM).
