The Defense Civilian Acquisition Workforce Personnel Demonstration Project (AcqDemo) is a congressionally mandated initiative launched in February 1999 to provide organizations within the Department of Defense (DOD) with personnel flexibilities beyond what is available under the existing General Schedule system in the areas of classification, hiring, compensation, and performance management. AcqDemo is designed to attract, motivate, and retain high-quality acquisition professionals by providing employees with a flexible, responsive personnel system that rewards employee contributions and provides line managers with greater authority over personnel actions. AcqDemo is managed and administered by the AcqDemo Program Office within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment. Approximately 49,000 civilian employees across DOD currently participate in AcqDemo, with the potential to grow up to 130,000 employees over the next 5 years. AcqDemo is currently authorized through Fiscal Year 2023, but may become a permanent alternative personnel system for the DOD acquisition community.
