Houseman & Associates is a customer focused training and consulting firm based in Alexandria, Virginia. Since 1981, we have provided COR and other acquisition classes, self-study programs and consulting services throughout the federal executive branch as well as to the Administrative Offices of the US Courts, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution, and major support service contractors.

Our Instructors are seasoned and respected professionals who provide real world knowledge regarding the challenges a COR may face in the field. At Houseman & Associates (H&A) we are dedicated to delivering current and interactive training to our clients.

What Makes Us Different?

UNMATCHED CURRICULA: Our COR curriculum is extensive in order to embrace the diverse needs and interests of our clients. We want to provide you with multiple ways to satisfy your FAC-COR requirements, and to assist you in earning crossover FAC-P/PM credits.

For example our Simplified Acquisitioncurriculum is tiered to provide training and certification for beginners, experienced hands, and purchasing managers. Our Appropriation Law courses link funding requisites to easy-to-grasp examples so that participants can learn and apply them to their own circumstances.

DELIVERY: Clients may acquire just-in-time sessions and small-group and individual mentoring. Our trainings can be conducted on or off site depending on the clients need.

TENURED FACULTY: We use only experienced instructors that have been former senior acquisition officials and experts with proven interactive training skills.
