Abstract:

Changing threat postures from the Soviet Union and the recent conclusion of a very lopsided war in the Middle East have citizens and policy makers critically questioning the military composition, size and mission. A smaller military combined with significant acquisition policy changes, face the military acquisition community of the future. In order to exist within that new acquisition environment, Program Managers will have to fully understand that environment, Program Managers will especially need to research the congressional - DoD relationship. It is Congress who authorizes and appropriates funds for DoD acquisition programs. It is also Congress who conducts aggressive oversight of acquisition programs that can affect the PMs leadership of in acquisition program. Developing an understanding about these interactions is the PMs best strategy to prepare for their occurrence.
