Abstract:

This report examines the medical material acquisition process and recommends ways to streamline it. We use requirements identification as our entry into the acquisition process and the management of those requirements to guide us through it. In doing, so we deal with important organizational responsibilities. Our discussions of combat and material development roles, missions, management effectiveness, and other sensitive issues will likely spark some defensiveness and challenge by participants in the acquisition process. Nevertheless, since the establishment of requirements begins the acquisition process, improved management of the requirements should benefit the entire process.
