Purpose

This pamphlet provides Army acquisition procedures for all aspects of the materiel acquisition process. The information provided is applicable to systems development, both weapon systems and Automated Information Systems (AISs). In addition to covering Army implementation of the Department of Defense (DOD) 5000-series acquisition guidance, the pamphlet provides Army unique procedures used in the materiel acquisition process.

Unless specifically excluded, the procedures in this pamphlet apply to all Acquisition Categories (ACATs) I through III.

Department of Defense and the Army leadership encourage tailoring and streamlining all acquisitions consistent with statutory and federal regulatory requirements. This pamphlet is designed to provide guidance in enough detail to facilitate the exercise of discretion and prudent business judgment; to structure a tailored, responsive, and innovative acquisition; and give the materiel developer (MATDEV) the flexibility to manage his program and accept reasonable risks.
