    While I applaude Ms. Turco's goals, this is a classic case of not seeing the forest for the trees. The DAU and the FAI should be merged with all the economies of scale that implies. There is no need for two completely separate acquisition education organizations. Better yet, the Federal Government should sponsor a new degree program in Acquisition Management at one or more of the regions universities and eliminate both DAU anbd FAI. One of the reasons the Federal Government cannot make an acquisition new hire into a functioning acquisition professional in less than about four years is the complete lack of any higher education in the discipline. When the government needs accountants, they hire candidates with a degree in accounting. When they need lawyers, they hire people who are ALREADY lawyers. Teachers, engineers, statisticians, psychologists, etc. - same approach. When they need acquisition professionals, they hire anyone they can find with a degree in anything at all and retrain them. It's absurd. Fix it Ms. Turco.
