The Department of Defense DoD strives to foster competition however, like many government agencies, the DoD tends to view competition as occurring only during the contracting process, rather than as a dynamic tool for achieving success over the life of a program. Most DoD programs today award development and production contracts to a single prime contractor or contractor team. Using this single-provider approach, the DoD fails to maintain continuous life-cycle competition -- the use of competition to motivate contractor performance throughout the life of a program.
