DOD Managerial and Supervisory Training

DCPAS manages the DOD Managerial and Supervisory (M&S) Training Program. Section 412.202 of title 5 Code of Federal Regulations and section 1113 of Public Law 111-84, National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010, codified in 5 U.S.C. 9902, requires DOD to establish programs to provide training for managers and supervisors within one year of initial appointment to a supervisory position and at least once every three years thereafter. Additionally, 5 U.S.C. 9902 requires mentoring of new supervisors by experienced supervisors. Mentoring resources are provided on the Mentoring Portal page.

2019 DOD M&S Learning and Evaluation Framework

DOD Components, Agencies, and Field Activities (“Components”) are required to develop, evaluate, and report on M&S training and new supervisor mentoring programs and ensure civilian and military managers and supervisors of DOD civilian employees complete all training in compliance with the 2019 Framework. Components are also urged to develop holistic training, education, and professional development programs and foster a culture of support for managers and supervisors. The 2019 Framework requirements target the performance of skills unique to the roles and responsibilities of the manager and supervisor. For detailed information on the 2019 Framework, consult your legal or human resources office.
