Abstract:

This paper will examine the current effects on transformational Commercial Off the Shelf COTS information systems from acquisition through their implementation and assess the capability to build, acquire and field these complex systems using current Army and DoD policy and guidance. It will explore the constructs behind transformational COTS programs and the impediments to success. Analysis will include an assessment of Major Defense Acquisition Program MDAP schedule impacts due to redundant reviews, discuss pros and cons of the Business Transformation Agency and provide recommendations for program managers and leadership for streamlining the process.
