    Answer

    DAU has two public domain FMS Systems Acquisition-related learning assets related to your Question:

    DAU's ACQ 380 FMS Systems Acquisition Lesson, which can be downloaded in Adobe Acrobat pdf form from the DAU.edu Int'l Acquisition Mgmt Community of Practice (ICOP) website at URL:

    https://www.dau.edu/cop/iam/_layouts/15/WopiFrame.aspx?sourcedoc=/cop/iam/DAU%20Sponsored%20Documents/FMS%20Sys%20Acq%2020210610%20ICOP%20FinalR.pdf&action=default&DefaultItemOpen=1 

    DAU's FMS Systems Acquisition Job Support Tool (JST) at URL

    https://www.dau.edu/tools/t/Foreign-Military-Sales-(FMS)-Systems-Acquisition-Job-Support-Tool-(JST)-

    These two DAU learning assets contain higher level content on DoD FMS systems acquisition policy and process matters, and do not appear to address all of the specific topics listed in your Question.  Based on our experience with FMS and its "connection" with the U.S. DoD acquisition process, we generally agree with all of the key points mentioned in your Question's list.  However, we do not have any additional DAU learning material that we can provide, so you may want to either develop your own or ask Navy International Programs Office for further assistance in this area.
