Abstract:

The Air Force was ready to run with a plan when Better Buying Power BBP 2.0 was released on April 24. The 34 initiatives are in seven focus areas. Each focus area represents a broad, top-level, best-practice approach to an efficient and more effective way of strategically managing acquisition processes. It is a challenge to manage, track and ensure the Air Force is implementing these concepts. We first identified the tasks assigned directed to the Services in the Memorandum. In 29 of these tasks, the Service Acquisition Executive SAE is responsible for providing a final product to the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics USDATL by a specific due date. The other tasks are led by various Office of the USDATL staff offices.
