Typical acquisition reform efforts have been focused in the margins, achieving marginal results. The evidence of decades of acquisition reform indicates that the marginal reforms typically taken are not making the fundamental changes needed by the Departmentof Defense DoD. Legislative changes made since 2009 and several years of Better Buying Power refinements have incrementally improved acquisition practice, but many would argue that more change is needed. The simple, but revolutionary reform idea presented here is based on the authors research for the paper and presentation titled Three Big Ideas for Reforming Acquisition, delivered to the 12th Annual Acquisition Research Symposium in Monterey, California, on May 13, 2015.
