This chapter explores some of the issues involved in acquisition management. It sets acquisition management into its wider context by describing some of the processes that lead to the decision to launch a particular acquisition project, looks at the use of acquisition strategies as a means to choose how best to acquire equipment and/or services and to demonstrate these choices to stakeholders, and at acquisition cycles as a means for managing the project once launched.
