CivicActions announces 24 DITAP graduates from the Department of Veterans Affairs

Date: Monday, July 19, 2021

CivicActions is pleased to announce the graduation of its newest Digital IT Acquisition Professional (DITAP) cohort, which included 24 procurement officers from the Department of Veteran Affairs.

DITAP was created to modernize how the federal government buys digital services. Specifically, it teaches students how to build flexible contracts that keep pace with changing technologies.

The six-month program starts by covering 21st century digital services — including agile software development, human-centered design, cloud computing and data management. Students then learn how to contract these services, and ensure their projects are successful.

DITAP also enables contracting officers to be business advisors and change agents within their own agencies. This serves DITAP’s bigger goal of building a culture of innovative acquisition across the federal government.

Upon DITAP graduation, students earn their Federal Acquisition Certification in Contracting Core-Plus Specialization in Digital Services (FAC-C-DS). By 2022, the FAC-C-DS will be required for all federal contracting officers who manage contracts of $7M or more.
