On December 27, 2021, President Biden signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2022 into law. The NDAA extends #AcqDemo through December 31, 2026. For the past 22 years AcqDemo has received numerous temporary extensions so this latest extension follows suit.

HCI's vision is to create a high quality, high-performing, agile Defense Acquisition Workforce, empowered to deliver the best possible acquisition outcomes in support of the Warfighter.
