The U.S. Department of Defense has issued a policy directing agencies to adopt artificial-intelligence capabilities to increase the speed and agility of operations. Despite this, there are no current initiatives to adopt artificial intelligence technologies into the Defense Acquisition System. This thesis examines the potential impact of artificial intelligence on DoD procurement. It studies organizations that have incorporated the technology in business practices, and on the basis of interviews with key personnel analyzes how well businesses have improved speed and agility. While the interviewees were not always clear about what artificial intelligence is, the technology could be helpful for procurement in market research, negotiations, insight, and contract management, among other ways.
