Acquisition Central web site was designed for the federal acquisition community and the government's business partners and Contractors.

From the Acquisition Central web site you can access shared systems and tools to help you conduct your government business efficiently.

ACQUISITION CENTRAL is hosted by IAE (Integrated Acquisition Environment), the E-Gov Initiative that is streamlining the federal acquisition process. Acquisition Central was designed to help every member of the acquisition community by providing one website for all things acquisition.

The Acquisition Central web site was designed to create an easily navigable resource to share the efforts of Integrated Acquisition Environment as it works to achieve its vision of more efficient and transparent practices through better use of information, people, processes and technology.

For those military and civilians who already have access via a Department of Defense (DoD) Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Certificate or Common Access Card (CAC) you do not need to do anything.

If you are a military or civilian user that previously only accessed the site via username/password, you will need to re-register with your DoD PKI Certificate (CAC).

If you currently do not have PKI Certificate (CAC) access below is some information about applying for or obtaining a DoD PKI Certificate:

DoD PKI Website:

PKI Information: All DoD employees (military and Civilian), including DoD Contractors that are working on site (military/government facilities) or contractors working offsite using Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) are eligible to obtain certificates from DoD PKI. If the contractor does not work on site or with GFE they will need to obtain certificates from an External Certificate Authority (ECA).

External Certificate Authority (ECA): ECAs provide digital certificates to the DoD's private industry partners, contractors using their own equipment or working in non-government facilities, allied partners, and other agencies.  Approved ECA Vendors:
