 The "Guide to DoD IA&E Practices" is essentially a 'stand-alone' version of the legacy DAG Chapter 1 Supplement 1 -- IA&E" which is in the process of being phased out.

The IA&E Guidebook provides detailed information regarding the IA&E concepts introduced in the Guide to DoD Program Management Business Processes located at URL https://www.dau.edu/functional-areas/program-management/  The term “IA&E” encompasses all of the elements of international involvement in DoD acquisition activities throughout the acquisition lifecycle – including Science and Technology, Research and Development, Production and Deployment, and Operations and Support – by exploring foreign solutions, International Cooperative Programs (ICPs), foreign sales or transfers, exportability design and development, and Technology Security and Foreign Disclosure (TSFD).

The IA&E Guidebook is intended to provide Program Managers (PMs) with information needed to organize, plan, and execute DoD international acquisition activities regardless of acquisition pathway, acquisition category, contracting model, or program type.

​Good morning, all. We are currently starting work under a Project Agreement - the program will involve the sharing of classified data between the two countries, and there is the need to develop both a Project Security Instruction and a Classification Guide.


If anyone has any examples of either of these documents which they could share, that would be greatly appreciated.


Regards,

Tom Coradeschi
