This project is a review of historical foreign military sales FMS within U.S. Army acquisition programs. The data analysis is used to produce background data, which is then compared to active acquisition programs, acquisition statues, processes and pressures placed upon the acquisition community to bring in a program under budget and ahead of schedule. A comparative analysis of the two Army acquisition programs is conducted in an effort to verify if statutes, processes or personalities are involved in the lower numbers of FMS in wartime and more robust FMS sales after the war. The analysis removes the higher wartime U.S. Army acquisition budgets as a comparative factor using the programs Program Objective Memorandum projected totals before war.
