For decades, the United States government’s acquisition and contracting processes have helped to safeguard the public sector and ensure quality in a myriad of critical missions and programs. But in today’s fast-moving technological environment, some of these old processes are hindering the DOD from keeping pace with the speed of innovation. It’s no question that reform is needed.
