Digital IT Acquisition Professional (DITAP) Certification Program

Acquiring digital services in an evolving technology landscape is a challenge for many government agencies. As the first government-certified Digital IT Acquisition Professional (DITAP) vendor, we prepare acquisition professionals (such as the contracting officers at USDS) to design innovative and flexible procurements for digital services.

Apply for our DITAP Certification program to learn how to:

  • acquire and monitor contracts for services such as human-centered design, iterative development methods, cloud, and X-as-a-service
  • use and apply metrics and incentives appropriately
  • create a culture of innovation and lead customers to the best solutions
  • do your part to transform the digital acquisition workforce

By completing this immersive, specialized six-month program, you’ll earn your FAC-C core-plus specialization in digital services (FAC-C-DS) certification.

You’ll also join the ranks of the 150+ contracting officers from across government who have completed our program over the past three years.

Apply by July 29, 2019 for a chance to join our next DITAP cohort.
