Abstract : The Secretary of Defense chartered this Process Action Team to "...develop within 90 days a comprehensive plan to reengineer the oversight and review process for systems acquisition. in both the Components and OSD, to make it more effective and efficient, while maintaining an appropriate level of oversight. The team is privileged and gratified to present this final report. This report offers 30 concrete recommendations for improving the process plus three others to implement the recommendations senior DOD leadership decides to undertake. To allow the reengineering to begin quickly, an implementation plan for each recommendation has been included. This was a difficult task for the Process Action Team. Nonetheless, through a lot of sweat, persistence and teamwork, a report has been crafted that reflects a consensus team view. The team is proud of the fact that the process worked. The Team, again by consensus, recommended that some of their number be core members on a follow-on team to implement the recommendations. This is reflective of their common commitment to the product they produced--another sign that the process worked!
