NDIA’s Defense Systems Acquisition Management Course Program's purpose is to bring together the industry program managers, assistant program managers, systems engineers, industry personnel serving on DoD Integrated Product Teams, and other personnel that must interface with DoD program offices involved in program development and execution.
The DSAM Course meets the needs of defense industry program managers in today's dynamic environment, providing the latest information including and related to defense acquisition policy for weapons and information technology systems; defense acquisition, reform, and initiatives; defense acquisition procedures and processes; the planning, programming, budgeting, and execution process; and the Congressional budget process.
The result of the successful completion of this course is a comprehensive understanding of the environment and driving forces affecting program managers, which will significantly increase awareness and effectiveness in dealing with programmatic issues.
The participation of such DoD presenters, Defense Acquisition University (DAU) professors and other guest speakers, and course participants is essential to achieve the purpose of the event program.

NDIA has a policy of strict compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. The antitrust laws prohibit competitors from engaging in actions that could result in an unreasonable restraint of trade. Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together – both at formal association membership, board, committee, and other meetings and in informal contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
