DOD’s New Competence Tool:

The Defense Department has been developing a competence modeling tool, which will guide procurement professionals in doing self-assessments of their skills and training, reports Government Executive. The tool will incorporate the department’s target capabilities, showing how they compare with the existing skill set. This will allow DOD to figure out what areas need to be strengthened and realigned. Shay Assad, director of Defense procurement and acquisition policy, said the Pentagon expects to complete development of the tool in March.
