dc.description.abstractDOD reduced force structure after the Cold War ended. More efficient and sophisticated weapons are necessary to support a smaller force. Acquisition reform legislation is designed to capture savings and usher in a Revolution in Business Affairs. Today a wide array of rogue nations, transnational actors, and domestic terrorism demand weapons procurement reform that is effective against a smaller and much less visible foe. The Department of Defense's goal is to deliver modern, high performance weapons systems at lower cost, on schedule and with higher performance. Better weaponry drives the reality that the nation and the Department find themselves in, an era of highly unpredictable security challenges. This research paper explores major procurement reforms and their effect on decreasing the amount of time and funds expended on current and future weapons systems. It looks for evidence of how the Department of the Navy's budget is impacted and what controls, if any, these reforms will have on future weapons procurement. The link between the Executive and legislative branches, DOD and program managers are examined to determine if procurement reform has helped.en_US
