This research paper proposes a framework for capturing and studying Technical Management Oversight (TMO) knowledge from past and ongoing international programs. Interviews were conducted with key program personnel from several programs to populate the framework with program data. Programs considered were HAWK, ROLAND, LANCE, MEADS, the International Space Station, and MLRS TGW. These programs had various degrees of international participation and various degrees of international coupling. Valuable insights were captured that can be applied to the structure and conduct of ongoing and future international programs. Among other conclusions, it is found that U.S. policy has not kept pace with international programs, the degree of international coupling within a program strongly affects management complexity and it is important to know the customers. Restrictions on technology transfer and release of information dramatically affect TMO. Cost share and work share issues strongly impact TMO, and patience and diplomacy are vital.
