Improving Acquisition

Convening experts and policy makers to discuss the workings of the defense acquisition system, DIIG explores potential reforms to deliver responsive, efficient acquisition in support of future missions.

The acquisition system is critical to how DoD functions, yet it is plagued by inefficiencies and organizational obstacles that prevent a more streamlined, cost-effective acquisition process. By critically examining key debates surrounding acquisition discussions and analyzing U.S. defense acquisition issue areas with DoD and industry partners, DIIG aims to identify opportunities for improving the acquisition system across all facets of the defense industrial base.
