This learning guide does not provide documentation of training, therefore it should not be used for continuous learning hours (CLH). An account is not required.


This DAU International Acquisition and Exportability (IA&E) video explores the various reasons that motivate the U.S. Government (USG) and the Department of Defense (DoD) to engage in IA&E efforts with allied/friendly nations and international organizations from a defense acquisition perspective. It also provides an brief overview of the IA&E domain's six functional elements-- IA&E Planning and Analysis, International Cooperative Programs, Sales & Transfers, Defense Exportability Integration, Technology Security & Foreign Disclosure, and International Contracting -- and how they work together to provide allied and friendly nations with national and coalition defense capability in support of our National Security and Defense interests. It not only provides insights into DoD acquisition but also how it interacts and intersects with Security Cooperation activities and programs.
