Exclusive Arrangement for the Enhancement and Delivery of EDFMT Content

Alexandria, VA (January 18, 2023) –The Society of Defense Financial Management (SDFM) and Management Concepts, Inc. are proud to announce an exclusive partnership to enhance and deliver the SDFM courses that prepare federal financial management professionals for Certified Defense Financial Manager (CDFM) certification. Effective January 1, 2023, Management Concepts assumed responsibility for updating and delivering the Enhanced Defense Financial Management Training Course (EDFMTC), the CDFM refresher courses, and the Module Four Acquisition Business Management (“Book Four”) course. The first EDFMT course under the new agreement will be delivered starting on January 30, with additional in-person and virtual courses occurring monthly.

“SDFM is excited about the partnership with Management Concepts.” Rich Brady, CEO of SDFM, “Their commitment to the federal financial management community and proven expertise in adult learning will provide our members a better learning outcome in the foundational courses. That will allow us to turn our eyes to the future and focus on developing new course offerings on emerging topics, such as audit, data= analytics, and robotic process automation and machine learning.”

“I see this partnership as a force multiplier for SDFM, allowing them to better achieve their mission.” said Thomas Dungan III, CEO of Management Concepts. “We can apply Management Concepts’ operational expertise and content development capabilities, freeing SDFM resources to grow its impact through industry certifications and member programs.”

SDFM and Management Concepts have a long-standing relationship and will work closely to ensure the enhanced curriculum reflects the current federal financial management practices and aligns with the skills and competences underpinning the CDFM certification. Under the new agreement students who successfully complete one of the training courses will receive a sixmonth SDFM membership at no additional cost.
