dc.description.abstractA more effective and efficient use of resources is a common theme today in both the private and public sector. It is not clear to us, however, that the methods for creating efficacy and efficiency in the private sector are directly transferable (or even adaptable) to the public sector. In this commentary we discuss the general characteristics of the federal government that mitigate directly against creating more effective and efficient accounting and control systems. Our specific focus is the Department of Defense. We present fundamental differences among the military services that could impact proposed changes. We provide an example of a system that was implemented across the military services. Finally, we discuss some reasonable goals for increasing efficacy and efficiency and some factors critical to achieving success.en_US
