|Publication Date:||6 May 2014|
This regulation implements Department of Defense (DOD) Directive (DODD) 5000.01, Department of Defense instruction (DODI) 5000.02, and Army Regulation (AR) 70-1, and establishes the Army's policy for medical acquisition programs. This policy applies to those acquisition programs funded by Army resources, as well as to those assigned to the Army for execution by the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs (ASD(HA)) and funded by Defense Health Program (DHP) resources. It does not cover the acquisition of capital investment equipment for TDA Health Care Activities, or the initial outfitting of expanded or newly constructed health care facilities, which are procured under the Army's centrally funded medical care support equipment (MEDCASE) program, in accordance with AR 40-61. This regulation also specifies Army acquisition workforce management responsibilities within the U.S. Army Medical Department (AMEDD).
