Letter: Degree required for acquisition workers

Regarding  "In search of contracting officers": "...eliminate the requirement of a college degree... ." Did he really utter those words?  I am going to give the gentlemen the benefit of the doubt that you misstated his words. Back in the day it was determined that part of the problem with the [acquisition] workforce was the lack of a requirement for KO and K specialist to have a degree. Now someone who was in [Office of Federal Procurement Policy] is advocating a return to the bad old days.

Can't be...tell me it ain't so, Joe.
