DEFENSE ACQUISITION GUIDEBOOK (DAG) (16-SEP-2013)., The Defense Acquisition System exists to manage the Nation's investments in
technologies, programs, and product support necessary to achieve the National
Security Strategy and support the United States Armed Forces. In that context, our
objective is to acquire quality products that satisfy user needs with measurable
improvements to mission capability at a fair and reasonable price. The fundamental
principles and procedures that the Department follows in achieving those objectives are
described in DoD Directive 5000.01 and DoD Instruction 5000.02 .
The Defense Acquisition Guidebook is designed to complement those policy documents
by providing the acquisition workforce with discretionary best practice that should be
tailored to the needs of each program.
Acquisition professionals should use this Guidebook as a reference source supporting
their management responsibilities.
