Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVES OF THE RESEARCH WERE TO EXAMINE THE MANNER IN WHICH THE DEFENSE PROCUREMENT PROCESS HAS BEEN MODIFIED OVER A PERIOD OF TIME BY THE PROVISION OF UNIQUE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES TO ACCOMMODATE FMS procurements, to explore the evolution of the FMS program and to ascertain the procurement problems associated therewith, and to assess the implications of the evolving FMS program with respect to defense procurement policies and procedures. The inquiry was limited to FMS of major aerospace weapon systems and equipment conducted on a procurement for cash sale basis. Such transactions account for over forty percent of all FMS cases, and the policies and procedures relating to such sales are generally applicable to other categories of equipment and weapon systems.
