Performance Measurement in Defense Acquisitions: A Case Study of the Navy
Buss, Terry F.
MetadataShow full item record
The federal government is becoming increasingly ''corporate'' and, consequently, business-like operations are now more prevalent than ever. Part of the mandate to ''act like a business'' is a need to develop strategic plans and goals, which require metrics to quantify what is to be attained. In this environment, an effective performance-management program is essential to success. The ASN (RD&A) has updated its strategic plan in support of the DoD''s efforts to transform the military based on these environmental changes. Its efforts to implement a revised performance-management program in support of its revised plan offer potential insights into performance measurement in defense acquisitions.
