Defense Acquisition University Equivalent Courses

The University of Dayton School of Law is proud to be a Defense Acquisition University (DAU) equivalent provider. Please view the eligible course and registration form below:

Contracts 2900


In this case-based course, students apply Contracting concepts and techniques learned in prerequisite courses to meet customer supply requirements and resolve complex Contracting issues. Special emphasis is placed on applying legal concepts from CON 216, pricing concepts introduced in CON 170, and negotiation techniques from HBS 428. Students experience the full spectrum of Contracting processes and issues by following a supply requirement through all phases of the acquisition life cycle, from acquisition planning through contract close-out. Research, analysis, and communication skills are honed through development and presentation of a critical thinking project requiring in-depth focus on one area of Contracting. Negotiation skills are sharpened through active student participation in two simulated contract negotiations.

Note: This course is an equivalent course that meets Defense Acquisitions University (DAU) CON290 requirements. In addition to meeting the DAU CON290 requirement, this course will earn students 3 graduate credit hours.
