ISG FACULTY & STAFF
Usually in this section, we feature just one of our faculty members. In celebration of the founding of our new organization, we'd like to take the opportunity to shine the spotlight on all of our faculty and staff.
We come from diverse academic and practitioner backgrounds, cover a range of important and emerging subject areas, and work hard to deliver programming that enhances ally and partner capacity to address shared security challenges.
Remember, we are the same faculty from CCMR/DGMT/IDARM programs-- just brought together under the ISG banner and now part of DSCA. We look forward to continuing our work in Monterey and overseas.
The Institute for Security Governance (ISG)—International Defense Acquisition Resource Management (IDARM) Program kicked off a two-week, “Principles of Defense Acquisition and Contract Management” course on Monday 22 April, 2019 in Miami, Florida in support of the Department of State (DoS) Central American Maritime Regional Initiative (CAMRI).
This is the first in a planned four-part series, scheduled in FY19 and FY20. A total of 18 students (4 Belize, 4 Costa Rica, and 10 Panama) attended this foundational course, which provided a practical examination of defense acquisition and contract management and emphasized acquisition and logistics planning and transparency and accountability in the decision-making process. The course also addressed the importance of managing risk throughout the defense acquisition life cycle. International best practices and global trends were discussed, highlighting specific challenges and opportunities within the context of maintenance and logistics systems common to Central American maritime forces. Participants also engaged in a practical application of the teaching concepts by simulating integrated product teams in a case study exercise.
