Abstract : This research project is a study of the United States Army Reserve (USAR) implementation of Congressional laws pertaining to the establishment of the Army Acquisition Corps. It includes a review of the USAR's compliance with the 1990 Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA). DoD Directive 5000.52, DoD 5000.52M, DoD Instruction 5000.55, DoD instruction 5000.58, as well as a discussion of Department of the Army acquisition guidance. The study includes a comparison of Active Component and USAR implementation of the law and guidances; and considers what systemic problems cause USAR postponement in implementing the laws and guidance. The study concludes with my recommendations regarding changes to DoD acquisition-related directives, instructions, and manuals; Department of the Army and USAR actions to fully implement DAWIA; the accession of USAR personnel into the Army Acquisition Corps; the use of Individual Mobilization Augmentees to fill critical Army Acquisition Corps slots; and the use of the USAR to accomplish contingency contracting.
