Description


During the “Big A” Knowledge Nugget, you will learn about how the elements of the overall acquisition process in the Federal government encompasses much more than just procuring goods and services. This larger acquisition context accounts for how new capabilities and their requirements are generated and vetted; how the agency contributes to their portion of the President’s annual budget and allocates resources; and how projects, programs and contracts are governed and executed. This larger acquisition context is referred to as “Big A.”
