Our priority is to deliver capability at the point of need through a Defense Acquisition System that is flexible, tailorable, and enables speed. ASD(A) is focused on moving defense acquisition away from being expensive, slow, and burdensome by reducing timelines, lowering costs, and improving quality while rapidly introducing new technology to enhance capability.
To do this, we are implementing DoD acquisition reform across four broad categories:
- Restructuring Acquisition Policy and Governance
- Contracting at the Speed of Relevance
- Strengthening and Securing the Defense Industrial Base
- Effectively Training the Acquisition Workforce
As the acquisition community collectively transforms the way we do business, we are providing increased lethality to our Warfighters and generating irreversible momentum for the Department and our Nation.
