Streamlining the Process: Improving Defense Acquisitions through Rapid Prototyping

An efficient and effective defense acquisitions process is vital to the success and safety of the modern warfighter. The Department of Defense, its subcomponents, and the military services are under great pressure to ensure American troops and those that support them have the tools they need to achieve their mission. In a time of budget constraints, defense leadership also has a responsibility to the taxpayer to ensure that these tools are delivered in a cost-effective and timely manner.  
In order to assess the state of the defense acquisitions process, the Government Business Council, with sponsorship from Booz Allen Hamilton, undertook a comprehensive research project that surveyed defense managers about the current acquisition process and how it has been improved since the Weapon Acquisition Reform Act of 2009.
