DEFM311 - Program and Acquisition Management II


This course of instruction addresses the DOD acquisition process once the government has decided that it must seek the enormous resources of the private industry. The scope of this course specifically addresses the formal process by which the DOD requests (or solicits) industry to respond to their needs and requirements. The course also outlines the evaluation process and evaluation criteria used by the government to evaluate and select the winning proposal. The course will review the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and the Defense Federal Acquisition Supplements (DFARS). Additionally the course will review the current policy in the DOD to outsource to the private sector (non-DOD sources) the tasks and functions previously performed by in-house government workforce.
