Abstract : This chapter concerns service specific and major systems statutes. A large number of the sections reviewed by the Panel did not fit into any of the categories of contract formation, contract administration, socioeconomic requirements, standards of conduct or intellectual property. Accordingly, these disparate provisions were grouped together for purposes of analysis. The Panel divided this large collection of statutory provisions into these following categories: Major Systems Statutes, Testing Statutes, Service Specific Laws, The Brooks Act and Warner Amendment, DOD Commercial and Industrial Activities, Industrial Base and manufacturing Technology Laws, Fuel and Energy-Related Laws, Fiscal Statutes, Miscellaneous Statutes. This list contained several subjects of great importance to the DOD acquisition process, such as major systems acquisition, testing, the acquisition of automatic data processing equipment, and the industrial base. Areas of lesser overall importance but of significant interest to special constituencies of the DOD acquisition community, such as the service specific provisions, fuel and energy laws, and the miscellaneous sections, are also included.
