These include economics, finance, financial management, information systems, organization theory, operations management, human resources management, risk management, and marketing, as well as the traditional public procurement areas such as contracting, program/project management, logistics, test and evaluation and systems engineering management.

Studies of government processes, systems, or policies should also expand the body of knowledge and theory of processes, systems, or policies outside the government.

Performance metrics and methodologies;
Collaboration and cross-functional teams; and,
