About Program Acquisition

Every acquisition program relies on a sound acquisition strategy reflecting a knowledge-based approach designed to inform decision making, reduce technology, integration, and manufacturing risk, and ensure program predictability. Sound acquisition strategies and the accompanying business/contracting strategies are essential to the execution of all acquisition programs.

Program Acquisition is the principal OSD subject matter expert for DoD acquisition and contracting strategy and advises the USD(AT&L) on critical decisions concerning major defense acquisition programs, major automated information systems and special interest projects. Program Acquisition staff provide support for Defense Acquisition Boards, Overarching Integrated Product Teams, Program Reviews, Peer Reviews and other required activities for major acquisition programs.

Objectives:

  • Promote development of sound program acquisition strategies
  • Foster continuous and effective communication with the acquisition community to ensure consistent application of policy, statute and regulation
