HCI Legal Authorities

The mission of the Office of HCI is largely derived from its role to assist USD(AT&L) in carrying out the responsibilities listed in:


  • 10 U.S.C. Chapter 87, the Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA), which provides special authorities and responsibilities to the Secretary of Defense with respect to the defense acquisition workforce;
  • 10 U.S.C. § 1701, which states:
    1. Policies and Procedures. The Secretary of Defense shall establish policies and procedures for the effective management (including accession, education, training, and career development) of persons serving in acquisition positions in the Department of Defense.
    2. Uniform Implementation. The Secretary shall ensure that, to the maximum extent practicable, acquisition workforce policies and procedures established in accordance with this chapter are uniform in their implementation throughout the Department of Defense.
  • 10 USC § 1702, which assigns the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (USD (AT&L)) the responsibility and authority to manage the acquisition workforce;
  • DoDD 5000.52, which provides policies and responsibilities for an Education, Training, and Career Development Program for the DoD AT&L workforce and establishes a single acquisition corps throughout the Department of Defense;
  • DoD Directive 5134.01, Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (USD(AT&L)), Paragraph 3.13 (ref 11), which states the USD AT&L shall establish policies and procedures, in coordination with the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, for the effective management of the acquisition, technology, and logistics (AT&L) workforce in the Department of Defense.
