Welcome to the International Acquisition Management Community of Practice (ICoP)!
International Acquisition Management includes Int'l Cooperation, Sales & Transfers, Tech Security/Foreign Disclosure, Defense Exportability, and Int'l Contracting activities. Our ICOP website is designed to provide the IA&E user community – including International Acquisition Career Path (IACP) members; Defense Acquisition Workforce (DAW) members; DoD/USG employees, contractor support personnel, and other visitors -- with 'one stop shop' IA&E resources. For general IA&E information also consider visiting the International Acquisition Management (IAM) Functional Gateway page. Click on the "International Acquisition News" menu item on the left hand side of the page for 'hotlinks' to public domain IA&E current news sources.
ACQ 340 is DAU's Position Specific Training course in International Cooperative Program (ICP) international agreement negotiation skills. Part of the Int'l Acquisition Career Path (IACP) curriculum, ACQ 340 graduates to date have enjoyed the international agreement negotiation simulation experience the course provides and rated it very highly. There are still spots available, so please consider signing up today.
The Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Committee results were announced on Nov 9th. If it becomes law, the FY 2018 NDAA will contain addiitional provisions on Foreign Military Sales (FMS) and Security Cooperation reforms. One of the specific provisions on FMS will require DoD to establish "specific milestones and standard timelines" for future FMS transactions. Click on the 'Security Cooperation Tile" to view the entire FY 2018 NDAA summary (FMS and Security Cooperation provisions are described on page 16).
What could we (the DAU DSMC-I faculty) do to encourage greater interactive participation by IA&E Community members on this website?
