Abstract : This thesis presents the results of an extensive research of the United States Navy and Venezuelan Navy acquisition processes for naval ships. A comparative evaluation is performed and critical areas have been identified in carrying out this complex process in both navies, resulting from various strategic environments and diverse domestics capabilities which combine to create unique acquisition methods. A proposed acquisition strategy is formulated from a management point of view, based on two models, to improve the existing Venezuelan Navy acquisition process -- Model A to the procurement of ships from the non-U.S. international market, and Model B specifically to the acquisition of naval vessels from the United States of America through Military Aid/Foreign Military Sales Programs.
