Development and implementation of a 21st century Marine Corps information technology (IT) roadmap may comprise a "tipping point" for future warfighting effectiveness. This thesis begins the basis for a framework for an information technology strategic roadmap for the United States Marine Corps. This thesis depicts how current acquisition programs align to current IT strategies. A premise, based on the theoretical foundation of general systems theory is that the alignment of multiple IT strategic plans, roadmaps and strategies positively affects system effectiveness. IT strategies are identified and compiled from Department of Defense (DoD), Department of the Navy (DoN), and United States Marine Corps (USMC) overarching strategic documents. Major acquisition programs for the DoD, DoN, and USMC are selected and summarized. These selected current acquisition programs are related to the identified IT strategies from the DoD, DoN, and USMC overarching strategic documents in terms of their interrelationships or alignment. Based on the research, this thesis provides recommendations to current acquisition programs to better align with the current direction of the DoD, DoN, and USMC IT strategy, and future research opportunities.
