STS MENTORS students in the Introduction to Special Operations Acquisition Course

Introduction to Special Operations Acquisition Course (ISOAC), part of the Joint Special Operations University (JSOU), offers newly assigned special operations forces (SOF) Acquisition Technology & Logistics employees’ instruction on SOF-unique acquisition processes, methods, events, and strategy. The course work is coupled with industry partner mentors to offer students insight into how businesses approach acquisition opportunities and respond to the acquisition processes.

 

The mentors spend a week with the class sharing critical perspectives to help the acquisition professionals see the benefits that can be delivered by industry while also being made aware of the risks the industry partners take on during the process. Having the industry partners integrated into the course improves the students’ overall knowledge of the entire process and what stakeholders offer to improve success.
