U.S. partners and allies interested in reforming their defense governance and management practices often turn to the United States Government (USG) for support. For 25 years, staff from IDA’s Systems and Analyses Center have helped provide this support.
Reform is not a static experience. At the beginning of a nation’s reform process, IDA establishes a team of cross-disciplinary, culturally literate subject matter experts (SMEs) able to understand the needs of its USG sponsors and the foreign partner.
