In 1986, Deputy Secretary of Defense W. H. Taft IV, established an "Acquisition Streamlining Initiative** (ASI) which addresses and attempts to "streamline" the acquisition process and mandated requirements. This research reviews efforts of one Hardware Systems Command—the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) —to implement AS I . In reviewing the five major programs streamlined thus far at -SPAUAR, it was found monetary savings have been achieved. The various manner and methods in which the savings were achieved, however, is the primary focus of this study.
