Abstract : This briefing documents a presentation to the Director, Acquisition Program Integration, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition and Technology). Our purpose was to provide alternative organizational frameworks that would better allow the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition and Technology) to carry out his mission. Our proposed organizational frameworks are unconstrained by the existing organization, the current staffing paradigm, or political considerations. If one of our frameworks or a similar one is adopted, considerable additional work will be necessary to develop a fully detailed organizational structure, a transition plan, and a schedule. This briefing should be of wide interest-to members of Congress, to staff of the Department of Defense, to general officers in the military services, and to anyone interested in how to reengineer a large government bureaucracy.
