TITLE:  DoD Directive 1200.16, "Contracted Civilian-Acquired Training (CCAT) for Reserve Components", 03/20/2004

SUMMARY: This Directive:  1)  Reissues DoD Directive 1200.16, dated May 30, 1990.  2) Establishes policy, assigns responsibilities, and prescribes procedures and guidance under the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), the Defense FAR Supplement (DFARS), and DoD Directive 4100.15, "Commercial Activities Program," March 10, 1989 for Contracted Civilian-Acquired Training (CCAT) for Reserve components of the Armed Forces.  This policy is intended to assist all Reserve Components, and by agreement with the Department of Homeland Security, the Coast Guard Reserve, in developing, conducting, evaluating, contracting, funding, reporting, and selecting training by contracting with sources outside the Department of Defense.   3) Does not preclude the practice of obtaining approved military occupation training for individual Reserve component personnel from civilian institutions either at direct expense of the Service member or with Government assisted tuition.   (The purpose of CCAT is to increase the number of mission-qualified individuals in the Reserve components, thereby improving overall readiness.  When appropriately justified, CCAT is an alternative to formal military school training and must be directly related to specific individual mobilization skill requirements or billet assignment.)
