Abstract:

This study of the utilization of DoD in-house laboratories was initiated in April 1974 by a memorandum to the Assistant Secretaries of the Military Departments R and D in response to a management objective of the Secretary of Defense. The charge for the study was to 1 determine the requirements for DoD laboratories, 2 assess the capability of the laboratories to meet these requirements, 3 identify excess capacity, overlapping capabilities, shortfalls or instances where R and D could be contracted to industry at a savings, and 4 define a program to upgrade the quality of the laboratories.
