ISG-IDARM Team Completes Fourth Iteration of 'Principles of Defense Acquisition and Contract Management' Resident Course

Published: July 2, 2019

The Institute for Security Governance (ISG) International Defense Acquisition Resource Management (IDARM) program completed its fourth iteration of “Principles of Defense Acquisition and Contract Management” during 17-28 June, 2019 at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California. The regionally tailored resident course is taught with Spanish and English simultaneous interpretation. “We continue to receive positive feedback from our Latin America partner nations by offering an in-residence course with Spanish language instruction. English only instruction had previously been a barrier for most of the nations that are now consistently represented in this unique course offering,” explained Ms. Brooke Love Adame, Associate and team lead for Latin American defense acquisition curriculum development.

Eleven military officers and government officials from Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Perú, and Panamá attended the two-week short course. Participants possessed a broad range of experience including management, accounting, legal, and contracting. Course participants engaged in daily working group exercises to apply the key concepts discussed in lectures and prepared and presented both a national presentation and working group presentations.
