Service Acquisition Workshops (SAW)

Recommended for all Services Acquisitions

A SAW is a facilitated workshop built around a specific acquisition and its multi-functional integrated process team (MFIPT).

  • Guides MFIPT through 7-Step service acquisition process
  • Step 0 is the initial coordination and assessment with DoD requestor
  • Generally a multi-phase consulting engagement for $250M+ acquisitions
  • Teams use Acquisition Requirements Roadmap Training (ARRT) tool for requirements definition (Step 4)
  • Mandatory for acquisitions ≥ $1B, strongly recommended for services acquisitions $100M or more.
