Letter: Add variety of experience to acquisition workforce

Regarding "IG enters search for acquisition employees," a reader writes: It is interesting that the DOD IG is actively seeking acquisition employees. I suggest he check the existing roster for
certified acquisition types that are literally in the wrong jobs. One place to look is Fort Monmouth.

Other viable candidates exist in the roles of the unemployed. Seeking employees from colleges is good for the future. These kids do not have the life experience expertise that is [needed] in a mature acquisition workforce. They need to be paired with more senior types to literally learn the tools of the trade for the inevitable day they become the senior type.
