Acquisition Management Advanced Study Course

Acquisition Management is the gatekeeper for the application of ITAM strategies determined by an organization, including policies, standards and lifecycle processes. An effective IT Acquisition Process empowers the rest of an ITAM program by applying process, determining pathways for exceptions and generating the initial records for the IT assets before an acquisition is even complete.

The Acquisition Management Advanced Training Course is based on the information and practices contained in the IBPL Acquisition Management Volume 10, which asserts the Acquisition Manager to be the “gatekeeper” for the application of all IT Asset Management strategies. Simply put, all IT assets should be ordered through the processes controlled by an Acquisitions Department.

A well-defined Acquisition Process follows an established policy for purchasing IT assets in the most cost-effective, productive, disciplined and predictive manner possible that is in line with an organization’s business objectives.

This course examines how a mature IT Asset Acquisition Process empowers the IT Asset Manager to function effectively while obtaining the best value in every IT asset purchase. The course also shows specific criteria concerning requirement and selection guidelines, formal product reviews, approval process, negotiations and contract development processes.
