SAM is intended to help you get your job done by providing usable tools and templates to create your performance-based service acquisition requirements.
SAM is based on the DoD 7-step service acquisition process. Click on any of the steps in the illustration to learn more. Within each page you will find suggested actions, step details, and links to relevant content and templates.
Detailed information about each of the services is available in SAM's Service Acquisition Wings. Click on any of the wings to read more about the DoD taxonomy of services.
SAM is also home of the Acquisition Requirements Roadmap Tool (ARRT) Suite, a collection of tools that help you build strategic elements of your acquisition documents by walking you through structured processes to help you ask and answer the right questions related to your acquisition.
The ARRT Suite includes a Requirements Definition tool, an Evaluation Factors tool, a Performance Assessment tool, and a Cost Estimation tool. These can be used independently or together to produce your work products.
