This new certification credential, the Federal Acquisition Certification in Program and Project Management (FAC-P/PM) has been put in place by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) because according to the April 25, 2007 OMB memorandum for Chief Acquisition Officers from the Administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy "Well-trained and experienced program and project managers are critical to the acquisition process and the successful accomplishment of mission goals."
