The International Defense Acquisition Resource Management (IDARM) Program at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California educates authorized allied military officers and civilian equivalents. IDARM provides graduate level executive and continuing education programs that support intellectual innovation and growth throughout the careers of the total force. IDARM program offerings provide participants with the tools, techniques, and skills to foster improvements in defense acquisition decision-making within their armed forces and defense institutions.
IDARM will conduct two events in Accra, Ghana. The five day “Advanced Contract Management” Mobile Education Team (MET) during 10-14 December, 2018 and the five day “Logistics and Supply Chain Management” MET during 25-29 March, 2019. The first course will provide participants from the Ghana Armed Forces an understanding of the important concepts and challenges associated with national and global defense contracting. The second course will examine the concept of integrated logistics support in the acquisition and maintenance of weapons systems. In both courses, participants will complete integrated group exercises to apply concepts and methods discussed in the classroom to real world scenarios. Background readings will be provided to amplify topics discussed and serve as a resource for participants. Additionally, these course will help build the intellectual capital of the Naval Postgraduate School faculty that will support these efforts.
