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 one week courses for the Lebanese Armed Forces. The first course will provide participants with an in-depth examination of the challenges associated with capabilities based planning through examination of the components and characteristics of effective capabilities based planning, requirements generation and key related concepts. The second course will focus on planning for and executing the negotiation of complex issues related to international armament contracts. International best practices are discussed along with the challenges of implementation. Course lectures are augmented with a case study and working group exercises. Improvement of defense acquisition management systems in the participant nation will enhance the U.S. Government’s security sector objectives at the national and regional level. Additionally, this course will help build the intellectual capital of the Naval Postgraduate School faculty confirmed to support this effort.
