Abstract : The purpose of this research is to determine if current regulations support a repeatable and manageable rapid acquisition process. The methodology used to analyze the research is the knowledge value-added theory and data extrapolated from selected acquisition reports. The results of our analysis demonstrate a need for an institutionalized rather than ad hoc rapid acquisition process. The recommendation is to cull pieces from the various rapid acquisition options currently available to develop a process that is repeatable and manageable.
