Abstract:

Among the acquisition streamlining initiatives of the past decade was the creation of the program executive officer position to oversee the execution of a portfolio of related major programs. This officer, in the direct reporting chain between the program manager and the service acquisition executive, has improved and focused program oversight and execution. But the imposed insertion of this position into the existing Air Force acquisition structure has complicated the relative roles and responsibilities with other acquisition officials- specifically the mission area directors and the designated acquisition commanders and has had mixed results.
