Acquisition management is getting people together to buy goods and services using limited resources in a regulatory controlled environment. There are five simultaneously enacted functions used to accomplish acquisition goals:
- Plan: whether strategic or tactical, planning is another word for forethought and it must always have a purpose i.e., the achievement of a specific goal
- Organize: this provides efficiency and effectiveness of execution as well as measurability of success; organizing a complex mission or single task into relatable blocks is a form of communication
- Staff: even in the tightest labor market, there’s no organization to lead without well-trained and empowered persons to execute the plan
- Lead or Direct: organizing people to a common goal though direct communication and knowledge of culture and ethos (e.g., providing the best value to the taxpayers)
- Control: Predict areas of error and measure performance against standards
