Army Civilian Training, Education, and Development System Plan
CP-14 - Contracting and Acquisition Career Program


A. Emergency Essential Positions. Emergency Essential positions are normally overseas and require the employee to sign an agreement before accepting the position, that in the event of a crisis situation, the incumbent, or designated alternate, must continue to perform the emergency essential duties until relieved by proper authority. The position cannot be vacated during a national emergency or mobilization without seriously impairing the capability of the organization to function effectively; they may be required to remain on station or required to deploy to perform contingency contracting, while non-emergency essential personnel are evacuated.

B. Contingency Contracting Positions. Contracting personnel in deployable positions or those in Emergency Essential positions should, whenever practical, attend CON 234, the Contingency Contracting Course, prior to assuming duties as a deployable contracting officer. The types of contingencies involved and the maturity of the operational environment influence the extent to which contracting support is needed and utilized. All CP-14 Contracting Professionals should be familiar with the doctrinal constructs detailed in FM 100-10-2, Contracting Support on the Battlefield.


Training and development opportunities for career program/field participants covered by this plan will be provided without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, non-disqualifying disabilities, or age. The Contracting and Acquisition Career Program fully supports the Army's Affirmative Employment Plan/Program (AEP) and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) program.
