Defense Acquisition Management: A Reader (Russian Version)

The IDARM Program published their textbook "Defense Acquisition Management: A Reader" in Russian. Please find an excerpt from the text below:

"Данная книга представляет собой “учебник” или, другими словами, сборник  статей, посвященных различным аспектам организации оборонных закупок. Книга была составлена преподавателями Международной Программы по управлению ресурсами в области оборонных закупок (IDARM), являющейся отделением Международной аспирантуры в Институте последипломного образования ВМС США, по инициативе д-ра Элизабет Райт, руководителя Международной Программы IDARM. Название IDARM было выбрано не случайно – Программа предназначается для международной аудитории, поэтому, практике, принятой в системе США, внимание уделяется только в случаях, когда она представляет собой передовой опыт, который может применяться повсеместно."

Comparative Assessment Project 2010

The International Defense Acquisition Resource Management Program (IDARM), a division of the Naval Postgraduate School’s Center for Civil-Military Relations, received funding to conduct a comparative assessment of defence acquisition in a representative sample of European nations.  IDARM selected the following countries for the study: Albania, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Moldova, Poland, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom. The diversity among the nations chosen for the Comparative Assessment is deliberate.  The UK and Germany have long histories of democratic governments with a sense of public (including fiscal) accountability; defence acquisition in competitive and capitalistic marketplaces; comparatively more resources for defence spending (to include research); and established and transparent contracting procedures that are subject to judicial review in systems where the rule of law is firmly established.  The former Warsaw Pact nations, Poland and the Czech Republic, are relatively new to western-style defence acquisition, while other nations, such as Croatia and Albania, are still emerging from their former regimes.  Finally, nations such as Moldova and Ukraine, which are still influenced by a Soviet-style defence culture, bring strategic and acquisition perspectives that give the Assessment a broad range of contrast from which to comment on the various processes and practices of defence acquisition.

Risk Management in Public Contracting

In Risk Management in Public Contracting, Elisabeth Wright, Ph.D., CPCM, offers a concise yet through overview of risk and risk management in public sector contracting. Emphasizing the fluid environment of contracting and contract management, Dr. Wright underscores how planning, monitoring, anticipating change, and proactive oversight immediately impact the success of a contract’s stated outcomes. Risk Management in Public Contracting not only defines risk in the procurement cycle, but provides a theoretical background for understanding the nature of risk. Identifying a framework and methodology for managing risk ensures the success of both the public agency and the government supplier.

Contract Administration

The focus of “Contract Administration” is the achievement of stated goals and objectives through contract performance. The field embraces a longstanding recognition of the three broad goals: a quality product, on time, and within budget. Quality contract administration must take a two-pronged approach: process and product focus. With emphasis on process and dependent on the specifics of any contractual arrangement, this book will prove to be a valuable tool for developing a strong understanding of the complexities of contract administration and recognize the importance of planning, monitoring, and proactive insight into and oversight of contract performance for the public procurement professional. It is one of six within the NIGP Foundation offerings in the Learning and Education to Advance Procurement curriculum.
