Revise Certification Mandates

OMB has been requiring certifications in many areas, which are fulfilled by training with no credit for experience or subject matter knowledge. This results in hiring "certified" personnel who waste funds due to a complete reliance on other feds/contractors as SMEs. Millions have been wasted in my agency this year by PMs with PMP behind their name and no acquisitions or subject matter experience. Their programs have been consistent failures.
