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 “Principles of Defense Acquisition and Logistics Decision Making” courses in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates during 16-27 September, 2018 which will provide participants with an understanding of the important concepts and challenges associated with defense acquisition and logistics decision making. Participants will examine the complete defense acquisition life cycle from a theoretical and practical point of view from the planning stages through disposal of equipment. International best practices are discussed along with the challenges of implementation. Background readings will be provided to amplify topics discussed and serve as a resource for participants. Additionally, this course will help build the intellectual capital of the Naval Postgraduate School faculty confirmed to support this effort.
