An analysis of the Army Service Acquisition review requirements and the perceived effectiveness on intended improvements
MetadataShow full item record
In 2009, the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (USD(ATL) established oversight requirements for service acquisitions upon realizing that services contracting accounted for half of the Department of Defense's annual obligations. This led to the enactment of stricter policies for services contracting within the Department of the Army. This project reviews the policies and procedures that led to the Army Service Acquisition Strategy (SAS) Review Requirements, analyzes their intent, and assesses progress. The objective is to identify potential improvements to the review processes and provide better value for Army service acquisitions. To accomplish this objective, a survey was created to target individuals who have submitted requirements packages through the Army Services Strategy Panel (ASSP) process. The intent of the survey is to assess the perceived effectiveness of these policy changes to determine whether intended improvements are being achieved. Research suggests that the Army may benefit from issuing a similar survey and should assess feedback to determine whether resources are being properly utilized. The Army should take measures to ensure lessons learned throughout the review process are captured to maximize potential value. Lastly, the Army should consider setting specific program metrics to track throughout the ASSP process.
