This is the first in a series of International Acquisition and Exportability (IA&E) Job Support Tools (JSTs) designed to supplement the Defense Acquisition Guidebook (DAG). The entire series has been developed by DAU to assist DoD Component organizations and Program Management Offices (PMOs) responsible for performing IA&E planning and execution activities. Each JST summarizes topic-specific policies, describes key areas for analysis and evaluation, and provides best practice advice on how to achieve successful international acquisition outcomes.
This IA&E Assessment JST provides guidance on how to conduct a program-specific IA&E Assessment as early as possible in a program's lifecycle to evaluate international considerations and potential foreign involvement in areas such as interoperability requirements, program protection considerations, cooperative opportunities, and international markets.
The other JSTs in this series are as follows:
