IA&E Elements

 IA&E ELEMENTS

The first five (5) key elements of IA&E are based on the competencies approved by the International Acquisition Functional Integrated Product Team (FIPT) Leader:

- International Cooperative Programs

- Sales and Transfers

- Technology Security, Foreign Disclosure and Export Control

- Defense Exportability Integration 

- International Contracting

The "sixth element" is IA&E Acquisition Strategy assessment, development, and implementation, which provides an overall framework for these five elements.  Overarching guidance on how to conduct IA&E Acquisition Strategy efforts is contained in the Defense Acquisition Guidebook, Chapter 1, paragraph 4.2.8 "International Acquisition and Exportability Considerations" and the Chapter 1, IA&E Supplement, CH 1-S–3. "Documenting International Acquisition and Exportability in the Acquisition Strategy"

ACQUISITION STRATEGY AND COALITION INTEROPERABILITY TEMPLATES

Office of SecDef (Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics) Acquisition Strategy and Coalition Interoperability Templates -- which are provided in the list of pertinent documents below -- are used by DoD acquisition workforce personnel as guides to document the "Acquisition Strategy - International Considerations" aspects of each individual DoD acquisition program.

DAU JOB SUPPORT TOOLS (JSTs)

Finally, the DAU/Defense Systems Management College (DSMC) faculty has developed "IA&E Assessment" and "Acquisition Strategy - International Considerations" Job Support Tools (JSTs) to assist Program Managers, International Managers, Integrated Product Team (IPT) members, and DoD Component Interational Program Organizations (IPOs) in the initial development and update of their programs' Acquisition Strategy - International Considerations section prior to each Milestone Decision.
