Definition Edit

Acquisition management is

a fully coordinated set of policies, processes, and tools that guide the workforce, both customers and contractors, through the lifecycle process — from the determination of mission needs to the procurement, management, and retirement or replacement of products and services that satisfy those needs. Acquisition management applies monitoring, analysis and measures of performance to the frequently long process of implementing large and complex systems.[1]
