The question requires a more high-level approach to the mission of “acquisition.” Many federal agencies have trouble defining these roles, as they are more than just 1102s. In fact, I would argue that acquisition workforce is a multi-disciplined and multi-sectored workforce, which includes program managers, contracting, and also contractors supporting this mission (blended-workforce). The current definition is too narrowly defined to be of benefit, let alone create data-drivedn human capital plans and resourcing strategies to support these functions.
