Abstract:

In early summer 2007, Capitol Hill was provided with the most comprehensive review of Department of Defense acquisition structures and workforce undertaken since the early 1990s. The Defense Acquisition Structures and Capabilities Review DASCR, or Section 814 Study, owes its name to section 814 of the fiscal year 2006 National Defense Authorization Act. In section 814, Congress directed that the Defense Acquisition University, acting under the authority of the under secretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics, undertake this far-ranging review of DoDs acquisition capabilities.
