Abstract : Despite many changes in the international security environment and in the worlds both of technology and management, DoD (Department of Defense) acquisition and technology organization remains structurally similar to where it was a decade ago. In particular, the structure of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Technology (A&T) has not changed in a way that parallels new DoD initiatives in such areas as greater use of commercial technology, lean production, outsourcing, and joint warfare.
