On 12 and 13 December 2018, NATO STO / SAS -125 Research Task Group on Comparative Analysis of National Acquisition Processes met at the STO Collaboration Support Office facilities in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. This team, led by the United States and Germany with participants from the United Kingdom and Turkey, has had several changes in membership but is on track to finish their work by May 2020.

Ms Stephanie Baynes, from the US Army Materiel Systems Analysis Activity (AMSAA) and Co-Chair of SAS-125, explained “The objective of the project is to create a compendium to help nations improve their national Acquisition Processes by using lessons learned of other nations”. ”Over the past 30 years, many Nations have experienced high failure rates in their acquisition programs. Failure is defined simply: new equipment approved for development were never fielded, but instead were cancelled somewhere along the development process” according to Ms Baynes.

The second Co-Chair, Mr Jakov Buller from Bundeswehr Office for Defence Planning, added “This acquisition failure is an unacceptable drain on defense budgets among NATO Nations and will have a larger impact with many nations currently increasing their defense budgets”. “Through the open exchange of ideas regarding nations’ Acquisition Processes, the final product shall define similarities and differences which can then be leveraged for better coordination between nations for joint projects, and to identify ideas to support continuous process improvement of nations’ Acquisition Processes”, stated Mr Buller.

The team is finalizing a survey to collect information on national historical acquisition processes, risks and life cycle costs, different types of acquisitions, existing funding procedures and expenditure types, and the relationship between defense industry and acquisition process and will send it out soon to get National inputs. Please contact the SAS Panel Office, if you want more information on this activity.
