NDAA FY17 Reform Recommendations Proposal

NDAA FY17 Reform Recommendations Proposal

Defense Acquisition

Recent legislation has suggested that the Department of Defense (DOD) acquisition process is long overdue for reform efforts. Although we have taken steps towards defense acquisition, through recent legislation, it is still not enough. In order to mitigate the delays incurred in our attempts to acquire the latest technological advances, we must seek immediate changes in the acquisition process. With the bid protest process being one piece that causes a guaranteed delay when utilized, we should shift our immediate focus on how to properly evaluate and improve our handling of protests.

James Ruedlinger, Jr., Lone Star alumni, authored this proposal during his 2016 Washington DC internship with the Office of Congressman Robert Pittenger, member of Financial Services Committee, Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee and Monetary Trade and Policy Subcommittee. These are personally held views do not necessarily represent the views of Representative Pittenger or the Financial Services Committee.
