Abstract:

This report examines the command pattern, organization, mission, functions, and scope of activities of the US Army Intelligence Materiel Development and Support Office IMDSO, so as to provide an overview of this specialized, non-standard intelligence materiel acquisition organization. Todays emphasis on materiel acquisition is focused on the large major programs. In the environment of large major programs, small materiel acquisition efforts have their own organizations, staffing, budgets, and development procedures. IMDSO is such a small materiel acquisition organization. IMDSOs mission is to provide support to the Office Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence, DA, and the intelligence and counterintelligence activities of US Army, and other DOD and US government agencies as directed by ACSI, DA. Using the guidance found in DOD Directives and Army regulations, IMDSO attempts to minimize procurement costs by using existing military and commercial items.
