The purpose of this MBA Project is to discuss the use of the coordinative acquisition tool, which supports Defense Acquisition Performance Assessment (DAPA) recommendations calling for more streamlined acquisition architecture. Specifically, we conduct an analysis of the coordinative acquisition strategy as presented by Dr. Joseph P. Avery in his January 2006 presentation entitled, Coordinative Acquisition Strategies; Hyperswift Response to the Warfighter as an acquisition tool used outside of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). We compare this method to DoD Directive 5000.1, DAPA, and other acquisition policies calling for acquisition cycle-time reduction and for a more simplified acquisition architecture. We also conduct a case study on the Rapid Identification Friend or Foe (RIFF) test kit prototype and develop lessons learned as it relates to DoD-wide implementation of coordinative acquisition as a viable streamlined acquisition tool for rapid acquisition of immature technologies necessary for warfighter support. We also discuss interviews with Government and industry representatives at all levels in order to better explore legal and ethical considerations of coordinative acquisition. Feedback from these interviews provides useful insight into industry's actual willingness to accept this form of acquisition for future projects within the DoD.
