Many government contracting officers say they or others in their organization lack training in critical contracting areas, according to a new workforce report. Project management tops the list of concerns, according to the report, produced by the Office of Federal Procurement Policy and the Federal Acquisition Institute and based on a survey conducted by OFPP, the Office of Personnel Management and other agencies. Contracting officers are also looking for more help in performance-based acquisitions -- both in terms of defining and managing requirements and in using metrics. Contracting professionals also said they need training in requirements analysis, negotiation skills, strategic planning and resolving contract disputes.
