The objective of this project is to examine how the Army is utilizing strategic sourcing as an effective process for getting the best overall value for acquiring goods and services. An analysis will be done to determine if the Army is using Strategic Sourcing as intended by the Office of Management and Budget OMB initial implementation. This will be examined to determine if strategic sourcing will contribute to the efficiency of the acquisition process. Acquisitions will be examined to determine if strategic sourcing is meeting the needs of the organization and alleviating redundancy in the acquisition process. The discussions will also look at how important internal customer requirements and external marketplace intelligence roles are in the strategic sourcing process. As a result of this project, the Army will better understand the areas that may need improvement and areas that have been working effectively. Future recommendations for research will be provided for consideration.
