Abstract:

Department of Defense policy requires that military Program Managers develop a tailored acquisition strategy that will provide the conceptual basis of the overall plan that a Program Manager follows in program execution. A strategy that is carefully developed and consistently executed is one of the keys to a successful program. It is a difficult and challenging task to blend the multitude of requirements for a major system acquisition into an acquisition strategy that represents a consensus among the organizations that influence or are influenced by the program. The challenges in developing and executing and acquisition strategy have led to the development of the acquisition strategy guide. The purpose of the guide is to provide the program manager a framework for developing and executing an acquisition strategy. Criteria for evaluating an acquisition strategy are described and developed. Many of the strategy alternatives available to a program manager are described including advantages and disadvantages, application criteria, functional interfaces and recent program experience.
