New DOD rule to increase procurement training

A new rule is in the works to improve how the Defense Department works with contractors.

Bloomberg is reporting that the Pentagon wants to professionalize the process of hiring contractors and negotiating deals.

The new approach will be detailed in a DoD Instruction 5000.ac, a directive that has been under review for more than a year. The gist of it is that DOD wants any official who hires a contractor to undergo training on writing requirements and negotiating terms.
