Contract Management Leadership Development Program (CMLDP)

The contract management workforce is facing one of its greatest challenges ever—the workforce is aging and retiring at a pace faster than the next generation is replacing them. The Contract Management Leadership Development Program (CMLDP) is designed to help develop the next generation of acquisition and NCMA leaders through an intensive year-long educational experience.
