New professional development guidelines for noncommissioned officers (NCOs) who specialize in Army contracting are outlined in the recently released and revised version of the U.S. Army Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development Guide at www.apd.army.mil/pdffiles/p600_25.pdf. More than 500 pages outline career development guidelines for all Army NCOs — from staff sergeants through master sergeants — in DA PAM 600-25, published Sept. 11. But for anyone in the Army acquisition, logistics and technology field, chapter 21 on page 292 is the place to look. The chapter outlines the career progression plan for contracting NCOs. The Army DACM Office has a dedicated site for 51C career management at asc.army.mil/web/career-development/military-nco/field51/.
