The objective of this project is to analyze rapid acquisition processes in order to evaluate the current organization, structure and regulations within the Department of Defense (DOD). This analysis helps determine if the rapid acquisition process used for two programs is repeatable for future endeavors. Additional analysis of identified DOD regulations and organizations shows how the rapid acquisition process expedited these systems and how it benefited the warfighter. The project reviews statutory and regulatory requirements covering the rapid acquisition process in the DOD and compares current DOD processes and the effects of their implementation. The project also reviews the warfighters’ actions when DOD entities do not address critical needs within reasonable timelines. The analysis results indicate that the current DOD organization and regulations do not provide an effective means for future rapid acquisition requirements, do not effectively promote the agility needed for rapid acquisition, and actually encumber the rapid acquisition process.
