Hello everybody. Can you please explain what "acquisition programs" are in simple words? Can you give me a synonym for the word "acquisition" here? I'd really appreciate that. Here is the context:

"The goal of our acquisition programs should be to develop a portfolio – a mixture of capabilities whose flexibility allows us to respond to a full spectrum of contingencies."

Thank you very much in advance.
acquisition program = detailed plan for purchasing something. Here, it seems to be investment shares.
Thank you Mister Micawber.
