Abstract : Financial resources for acquisition policy research are largely absorbed in paying salaries to people who do the research. Vast resources -- resources that do not arise from Department of Defense (DOD) funding for acquisition research organizations -- are currently available to the DOD for defense acquisition policy studies through U.S. universities. Fiscal constraints and public- policy imperatives may require the DOD to rely more heavily on the resources of the nation's universities for acquisition policy research than it has in the past.
