The Defense Acquisition Visibility Environment (DAVE) provides Department of Defense personnel with access to accurate, authoritative, and reliable data to support acquisition oversight, insight, analysis, and decision-making. DAVE is the authoritative source for Program Information for major programs and provides access to data and capabilities that can give you material for analysis, as a student, and for doing your job, as an acquisition professional.
To request access to DAVE, NPS students, faculty, and staff should first contact the NPS POC, Charles Pickar. This is NOT a library resource and we cannot help you obtain access to it.
