We are currently reviewing the business processes associated with the Air Forces C17 aircraft production program focusing on acquisition, asset management, andaccounting.1 Our underlying objective was to conduct a case study to examine the business processes used to make investment expenditures during the production phase of a major weapons system. We selected the C-17 program because 1 it is currently a mature, stable program, 2 we have prior experience in reviewing the program, and 3 its current contract is performance-based rather than cost-based. We will be issuing a separate report on the end-to-end procurement business process, which includes acquisition, asset management, and accounting.
