Abstract:

The objective of the research effort was to analyze congressional material over an extended period of time 1967 through 1972, identifying the extent of congressional concern and criticism of DoD acquisition management, and assessing major areas of DoD management as highlighted collectively by the committees having oversight responsibilities. The analysis attempts to examine DoD management weaknesses in the aggregate rather than as individual problems to obtain a better perspective of the macrocosmic nature of trends or improvements needed.
