Inoperable since February, the Federal Acquisition Institute Training Application System (FAITAS) came back online on Friday, March 30th.
The Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI) previously stated that FAITAS was unavailable due to “unscheduled maintenance,” but there was widespread speculation that the site suffered a cyber incident. FAITAS is operated for FAI by the U.S. Army through its Army Training Requirements and Resources System (ATRRS).
FAI has updated its Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about use of FAITAS to request training, document continuous learning points, and related matters. The FAQs can be found here: https://www.fai.gov/drupal/sites/default/files/FY18MILRestriction_AccessRestored_FAQs.pdf.
FAITAS, and the training accessible through FAITAS, can be accessed only by civilian and military members of the government. FAI operates a helpdesk that can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 703-752-9604.
Vendors who have had their courses verified by FAI for purposes of meeting Federal Acquisition Certification in Contracting (FAC-C) standards are listed at: https://www.fai.gov/drupal/certification/verified-contracting-course-vendor-listing.
