Treasury Acquisition Institute Registration & General Information

COURSE LOCATION AND HOURS

The Treasury Acquisition Institute, located at 6009 Oxon Hill Road in Oxon Hill, Maryland, is the training location for all TAI courses. The location is very easy to find and includes free parking.

Classes begin at 8:00 am and end at 4:00 pm unless otherwise noted on the registration confirmation.

HOW TO REGISTER

The Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI) launched the Federal Acquisition Institute Training Application System (FAITAS) on May 31, 2011. This system replaces the former system (ACMIS) as the system of record for all acquisition certification programs (FAC-C, FAC-COR and FAC-P/PM), and it is used to register for all Treasury Acquisition Institute (TAI) courses.

REGISTRAR INFORMATION

The Treasury Acquisition Institute has two registrars; please contact either one if you have questions concerning your registration.

Rewa Houston; 240-613-8179; Rewa.T.Houston@irs.gov
Donald Guy; 240-613-8153; Donald.I.Guy@irs.gov

ATTENDANCE POLICY

You are required to attend all scheduled days of your course. If you have to be absent from any portion of the course, notify your supervisor, instructor, and a Treasury Acquisition Institute (TAI) staff member. Significant absences from the classroom will be reported to your supervisor and may result in your not receiving a certificate of completion. Cumulative absences of instructional time may be grounds for failing the class. Students who miss extended periods of time will be required to make-up class work before receiving a certificate of completion.

WITHDRAWAL AND CANCELLATION POLICY

If you are unable to attend a class for which you are registered, you must cancel your registration in FAITAS no less than two weeks before the class start date (four weeks for classes with pre-course work).

Canceling your registration later than the timeframes above, may result in a penalty preventing you from registering for the same course for a period of up to 3 months.

If TAI cancels a course for any reason, we will make every effort to notify all confirmed participants and discuss enrollment in a future session.

DRESS POLICY

The dress policy is casual business attire. Shorts, caps, tank tops, athletic sweat suits and flip flops are inappropriate. For your comfort we highly recommend you bring a jacket or sweater.

REASONABLE ACCOMODATIONS

It is the responsibility of the employee’s manager to arrange reasonable accommodations (i.e., interpreter for hearing impaired) for the individual. Please send an email to Rewa Houston at Rewa.T.Houston@irs.gov or Donald Guy at Donald.I.Guy@irs.gov to notify of and coordinate your request for reasonable accommodations with TAI.

WEATHER RELATED ISSUES

TAI’s operating status is the same as the operating status for Federal Employees in the Washington, DC Area. To check operating status in the Washington, DC Area go to the OPM website: http://www.opm.gov/Operating_Status_Schedules. If the Federal Government is closed, TAI will be closed. If weather conditions prevent you from attending class, we will be happy to reschedule you in a later session.

When weather-related absences affect significant segments of the course, the instructor determines if the missed material will be rescheduled. If a student does not complete the prescribed make-up, no credit will be issued for any part of the course.
