Abstract : The military construction acquisition system is in need of major change. Reduced manpower and project funding levels, as well as the need to restore public confidence in military management, requires a thorough review of the facility acquisition process. This paper reviews the weaknesses of the present facility acquisition process from the user's identification of a requirement to the construction of a facility. Recommended changes include assigning Major Commands as the focal point for programming and execution of the Military Construction Program, standardized designs, a computer data base of contractor and product performances, an emphasis on individual responsibility, and the need to consolidate and simplify public laws dealing with facility construction.
