Abstract : During the 20 years of its existence, the Defense Systems Management College (DSMC) has earned a well-deserved, world-wide reputation in government and industry for quality education, research, and information dissemination programs. The college's vision statement is as follows: 'The Defense Systems Management College will improve its ability to serve as the national center of excellence for defense acquisition management education, research, consulting and publications. We will lead efforts throughout DOD, industry and Congress to continuously improve defense acquisition management processes.' The DSMC faces many new challenges in the 1990s and a changing environment that will alter its operation. Reduction in the military budgets of the United States and its allies, and the sizes of U.S. armed forces will affect the acquisition system and its work force
