Abstract:

The medias featuring of the failings of the Department of Defense acquisition community has influenced the American public to believe that the military industrial complex is full of charlatans and clowns. Admittedly, there have been serious errors, well documented and exhibited for all to observe. In some ways the publics perception well is not too far from wrong. However, it was not just DoDs Acquisition work force by itself, but also the Congressional mandated requiring the acquisition work force to comply with laws which made Defense Acquisition a nightmare of conflicting rules and regulations with no added value. With the fall of the Soviets and the shifting of Americas attention. Congress in the coming session will most probably pass DoD acquisition reform legislation.
