Pagination or Media Count:
In January 1993, the Department of Defense Inspector General DOD 10 released a report that recommended disciplinary action against five Air Force officials for ethical misconduct and mismanagement on the C-17 cargo aircraft program in 1990. The accused officials vehemently denied the charges. This case study examines the ethical pressures on acquisition officials with an emphasis on the accusations of misconduct on the C-17 program. The study analyzes the C-17 case for lessons learned and examines the possible effects of proposed acquisition reforms on the ethical environment for program managers.
