dc.descriptionSecond Annual Acquisition Research Symposiumen_US
dc.description.abstractThe 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.;The following article is taken as an excerpt from the proceedings of the annual Acquisition Research Program. This annual event showcases the research projects funded through the Acquisition Research Program at the Graduate School of Business and Public Policy at the Naval Postgraduate School. Featuring keynote speakers, plenary panels, mulitiple panel sessions, a student research poster show and social events, the Annual Acquisition Research Symposium offers a candid environment where high-ranking Department of Defense (DoD) officials, industry officials, accomplished faculty and military students are encouraged to collaborate on finding applicable solutions to the challenges facing acquisition policies and processes within the DoD today. By jointly and publicly questioning the norms of industry and academia, the resulting research benefits from myriad perspectives and collaborations which can indentify better solutions and practices in acquisition, contract, financial, logistics and program management.
