A procurement view of the Systems Acquisition Process is shown in a procurement model within the systems acquisition environment. This model is developed by integrating the systems acquisition activities of the Systems Acquisition Process and the generic procurement activities of the Procurement Process into a Procurement Process Framework. The procurement model is used as an aid in identifying critical factors which affect systems acquisition activities and impact on the Procurement Process, causing problems in procurement. These critical factors are the objectives of the particular system acquisition program the policies used to direct, guide, and control acquisition and procurement activities the participants the informational inputs the available resources and considerations of cost, schedule, and performance. The procurement model is also used as an aid in identifying systems acquisition problems during a field study at the Aeronautical Systems Division of the Air Force Systems Command.
