Abstract : This thesis examines the acquisition environment and the Marine Corps Acquisition Process as they relate to the determination of initial requirements for weapon systems in juxatposition with Congressional and public expectations. The major conclusion drawn is that greater incorporation of operational Commander's inputs will serve to develop a more viable baseline required operational capability, and that the best vehicle to record and manage these inputs may be the Remedial Action Program (RAP).
