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"
