ARLINGTON, Va. (July 11, 2022)—The Honorable Douglas R. Bush, the Army Acquisition Executive, recently announced the launch of the Army Acquisition Hall of Fame award program.
“Our Army Acquisition Workforce professionals are the foundation of our acquisition programs and imperative in ensuring our Soldiers have the tools they need to be successful,” said Bush. “In the decades since the formal establishment of the professional acquisition workforce, our Army has continued to transform into a multi-domain force thanks to the innovative, experienced, and agile Army Civilians, Officers and Noncommissioned Officers who makeup our workforce. The Army Acquisition Hall of Fame intends to preserve that legacy.”
The Army Acquisition Hall of Fame is open to former Army Acquisition Workforce professionals who served a minimum of 20 years in federal service and have been retired or separated from service at least one year. Nominees will be evaluated on their significant and enduring contributions to the Army acquisition community’s historic and ongoing missions.
“It has been my honor to work in Army acquisition and be part of such a professional and dedicated workforce,” said Lt. Gen. Robert Marion, Military Deputy to the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology. “We in the Army Acquisition Workforce have a strong sense of heritage, honor, and pride. This Army Acquisition Hall of Fame will strengthen that sentiment.”
The Army Acquisition Workforce is currently made up of more than 32,000 Army Civilians, Officers, and Noncommissioned Officers who develop, acquire, and sustain operational capability. Army acquisition covers six functional areas: engineering and technical management; contracting; life cycle logistics; program management; test and evaluation; and business financial management and cost estimating.
Nominations for the Army Acquisition Hall of Fame are being accepted now through July 29. The inaugural Army Acquisition Hall of Fame award ceremony is scheduled to take place in October 2022.
