Abstract
The purpose of this research is to analyze the current structure of the acquisition arm of Air Force Space Command using the Policies and Process cornerstone of the Framework for Assessing the Acquisition Function at Federal Agencies. The acquisition arm belonged to Air Force Materiel Command until 1 October 2001, when the reigns were transferred to Air Force Space Command to provide "cradle-to-grave" management from concept through development, acquisition, sustainment, and final disposal of space systems. The objective of this research is to determine if the current Air Force Space Acquisition policies and processes are efficient and effective according to the GAO-05-218G "Framework for Assessing the Acquisition Function at Federal Agencies". This research will provide results of a questionnaire and will provide an assessment of that questionnaire.
