Abstract : The objective of this study is to identify and analyze the R&R of the DAE, other acquisition officials, and CIOs as specified in Title 10, Title 40, and Title 44 of the USC for consistency of implementation in DoD policies; to identify potential conflicts in DoD executive R&R as implemented in DoD policies; and to formulate possible remedies to these potential conflicts if none can be found in applicable DoD policy. For the purposes of this study, R&R are activities, actions, tasks, duties, jobs, or functions assigned to an executive by an authoritative source.3 Authoritative souinclude federal law, executive orders, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) circulars, and agency policy documents (in particular, DoD policy documents). As part of this analysis, we identify DAE and CIO R&R that are well defined and those that may be poorly defined or may lead to potential conflicts.
