Thirty years after the implementation of the Goldwater-Nichols Act of 1986, congressional and military leaders are calling for an assessment and revision of the act that will posture the Department of Defense to meet uncertain and increasingly challenging threats. This project researched the environment leading up to Goldwater-Nichols, the impacts of implementing the act, and the acquisition reform efforts over the last 30 years in order to understand the current calls for acquisition reform and the potential impacts of proposed legislation.
