Abstract : In April 1993, the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition) asked the Defense Science Board (DSB) to undertake a study to define comprehensive modifications to the process the Department of Defense uses to acquire goods and services. Out of that initial tasking grew a number of complementary studies, each looking at a specific industry or technical capability with the intention of reducing and increasing acquisition efficiencies through the application of commercial practices. In September, Robert J. Herman, Chairman of the DSB Task Force on Defense Acquisition Reform, asked General Bernard P Randolph, USAF (Retired), to form a panel to study Jet Engines as a Pilot Industry. The purpose was to determine the feasibility of procuring all military jet engines using commercial practices.
