The Salvadoran Armed Forces have to face a new environment in which resources are severely constrained. To accomplish its mission effectively and efficiently, the Salvadoran Armed Forces must use a more scientific approach to financial management. The United States Department of Defense (DoD) model for acquisitions uses an approach developed using systems engineering and, as a result, most military acquisitions satisfy an effective need. El Salvador Ministry of Defense has substantial problems in the area of acquisitions. This research can help the Salvadoran Armed Forces to develop a more effective acquisition system by providing a frame of reference that can be applied to analyze problems and to define potential solutions.
