This page last updated on September 18, 2013

Once a Department of Defense position (civilian or military) has been evaluated and it has been determined to be an acquisition position it must be assigned to one of the current acquisition career fields/paths.  This is done by associating those acquisition related duties/functions to the Position Category Description (PCD) that best describes the preponderance of those acquisition related duties/functions.
