Preparing and Adapting to Changes in the Acquisition System 

The mission of The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Acquisition) (ASD(A)) is to reshape the enterprise utilizing short and long-term initiatives that create lasting changes to the acquisition system.  Acquisition reform in conjunction with Better Buying Power 2.0 will change the way OSD / DoD will be working with primes and suppliers. ASD(A) also has oversight of the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA), which provides Contract Administration Services to the DoD Acquisition enterprise and its partners. In already constrained environments, these additional oversights are accruing costly delays, stress and stalls in programs. How can industry and ASD(A) work together to avoid these delays while being compliant with DCMA requests?  Learn first-hand what factors influence decisions and get updated about what will impact all DoD acquisitions — current and future.

Alternative approaches include looking at competition for logistical support of the program.
