Abstract

The article provides a comparative analysis of the establishment and operation of the systems of defence procurement (acquisition) for the United States` Department of Defense (DoD of the USA) and the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defenсe (MoD of the UK) by analysis of regulatory frameworks and approaches managing of the defence procurement (acquisition) systems. With the help of the structural-functional method, a hierarchy of key participants of the defence procurement system (acquisition), their functional interconnections, roles and functions are identified. By using a systematic approach, it was determined that the establishment and operation of a public procurement (acquisition) system for the defence needs of the USA and the UK is a complex process that is significantly affected by financial and time constraints, strategic vision and priorities for the development of the industry. The main principles for the most efficient organization and operation of the procurement (acquisition) systems of the DoD of the USA and the MoD of the UK are: the application of a procedural framework, the definition of rules and models for the interaction of participants, transparency, the presence of competition, professional development, periodic assessment and verification.
