HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 2, 2017—As part of its commitment to professional development for U.S. Army Acquisition personnel, SCI Technology, Inc., a division of Sanmina Corporation (NASDAQ:SANM), hosted 20 majors and lieutenant colonels on February 9th for the Army Acquisition Center of Excellence’s (AACoE) Intermediate Qualification Course (IQC). The Army Acquisition Corps is responsible for developing, acquiring, fielding and sustaining the materials needed to meet the U.S. Army’s current and future mission requirements.
Visiting SCI helps these U.S. army officers advance their professional development by providing insight into a defense and aerospace technology firm’s day-to-day operations. For SCI, hosting the officers represented a valuable opportunity to foster partnerships with future Army Acquisition leaders.
“This was a great way for SCI to give back to the Acquisition Corps, and at the same time help develop the skills of officers who provide superior acquisition support for the U.S. Army,” SCI President Mike Underwood said. “Everyone at SCI was delighted to share their time and experience with the next generation of Army Acquisition leadership.”
The visit included a tour of Sanmina and SCI’s 685,000-square-foot facility and a Q&A session with SCI’s leadership team. Roundtable discussions covered several topics related to acquisition, including program management, contracting, business development, engineering & product development, manufacturing, test and quality control.
Headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama, SCI delivers unsurpassed quality and support to the defense and aerospace sector. For more than 55 years, SCI has designed and provided some of the most advanced systems for military and commercial aviation, ground tactical and other defense applications, as well as industrial and space-flight programs.
Located on the campus of the University of Alabama in Huntsville, the AACoE is the Army’s education directorate that oversees and provides professional military education for all Army acquisition officers. The IQC is a three-week program aimed at developing acquisition officers capable of leading and managing any acquisition organization at the senior level.
The army officers who visited SCI are active duty, Army National Guard and Army Reserve officers with 11 to 15 years of service. On average, they have completed two acquisition assignments, with the majority serving as Assistant Program Managers, Contracting Officers, Combat Developers or Test Officers.
