Abstract:

This article provides a brief overview of Foreign Military Sales FMS, its role in the ever changing dynamic environment that we live in, and finally how some of the specific FMS processes can be improved through the application of logistics best practices and initiatives. The ultimate goal is to continually improve the processes associated with FMS to create a win-win scenario for the Department of Defense and affected stakeholders. The best practices within the framework of the ten integrated logistics support ILS elements discussed within this article should be merged into the current acquisition or logistics support strategy.
