HCI Hosts PPTE Capstone Session (10/24/2022): On October 24, the Defense Acquisition University's Office of Acquisition Human Capital Initiatives hosted a capstone virtual event for the DoD Public Private Talent Exchange (PPTE). This event celebrated the achievements of the PPTE cohort and gave them an opportunity to participate in a discussion with leaders: Mr. James Woolsey, President, DAU; Mr. David S. Cadman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Acquisition Enablers; Ms. Lisa P. Smith, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Product Support and Functional Area Leader for the DoD Life Cycle Logistics Workforce, and Mr. Scott Bauer, Director, Acquisition Human Capital Initiatives.
The PPTE program affords DoD and industry mid-career professionals an opportunity to gain exposure and experience in operations, business culture, and challenges and the opportunity to share innovative best practices. PPTE builds stronger communication and trust between the DOD and the private sector. The next cohort will begin in February 2023.
HCI thanks the Army, Department of the Navy, F-35 Joint Program Office, Accenture, Amazon, Dcode, GA-ASI, National Defense Industrial Association, and Sterling Foods for their participation in the 2022 PPTE Program.
