Digital IT Acquisition Professional (DITAP) Certification Program

We’re now accepting applications to participate in our next DITAP cohort. Apply by July 31, 2020 to be considered. For information about the program, download the program details and schedule.

250+ contracting officers

from more than 35 agencies have completed our program and earned their FAC-C-DS to date.

Acquiring digital services in a constantly evolving technology landscape is a challenge for many government agencies. Starting in 2022, all federal acquisition professionals who manage digital service contracts of $7M or more will be required to have a FAC-C core-plus specialization in digital services (FAC-C-DS) certification. Acquisition professionals can earn their FAC-C-DS by completing the immersive, specialized six-month DITAP program.

Over 80%

of participants responded that they’re committed to applying what they learned to their jobs.

As the first government-certified DITAP vendor, we prepare acquisition professionals to design innovative and flexible procurements for digital services as well as become change ambassadors within their organizations. Throughout the program—informed by the most current resources, tools, and best practices in digital service acquisition—you’ll:

  • Acquire the skills required to execute digital service procurements and act as a qualified business advisor.
  • Become equipped to work directly within an agency digital services team or acquisition innovation lab to serve as a business advisor to the team, its customers, and its stakeholders.
  • Gain the knowledge to lead agency training workshops and provide consultations in order to expand digital service procurement expertise within an agency and across the government.
