Abstract : Three recent events have prompted the Department of Defense to significantly revise its acquisition procedures in a process now being called the Acquisition Revolution. These changes have caused great concern in the small and disadvantaged business community because of their potential for significant negative impact on that particular group of businesses. The initial review shows there has been some impact in preferential and set-aside categories, but overall DoD had a slight increase in contracts awarded to small disadvantaged businesses.
