Abstract:

The Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Military Departments, and the Defense Agencies are focused on transforming the way they do business. Building on past successes, communicating the status of improvements, and assessing progress all serve to provide a framework for action. Acquisition initiatives contribute to program stability and predictability and reduce unintended cost growth. Recommendations from multiple sources are fairly consistent in identifying problems and solutions. Initiatives identified in the February 2007 section 804 National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 Defense Acquisition Transformation Report are covered in this report, as well as new programs to reflect acquisition transformation efforts Department-wide. Some have been initiated and some have not proven to be as effective as envisioned. However, the roadmap for change is clear and the Department continues on course.
