Attend GWAC Delegation of Procurement Authority Training

Before issuing task orders on a GSA GWAC, federal contracting officers must complete training and receive a Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA). You can attend training for a specific GWAC or schedule a combined training session if you want a DPA for two or more of GSA’s GWACs.

Training sessions last approximately one to two hours, and many sessions offer Continuous Learning Points. 

We offer training via several methods:

What does the training cover?

  • Scope
