Abstract : Over the past two years, there have been sweeping changes initiated in defense acquisition. One of the key forces for acquisition change has been the President's Blue Ribbon Commission on Defense Management--often called the Packard Commission. This monograph provides an independent view of the packard Commission recommendations, the related congressional legislation, and how the DoD should and will implement both the recommended and directed changes. It is intended to be a useful tool in understanding what has happened, what may happen in the future, and what impact these changes may have on various levels within the defense acquisition systems. Topics include: The Packard Commission Report and Congress, and its impact on the Air Staff and Air Force Secretariat, and its influence on financial management, and the System Program Office; and Defense acquisition in A.D. 2007--A prescriptive history (Beyond the Packard Commission report).
