Rep.Mac Thornberry discusses defense acquisition reform proposals
The Shirazi Foundation attended an event hosted by the Brookings Institution titled Rep.Mac Thornberry discusses defense acquisition reform proposals. At this event, an expert offered answers as to how congress is now shifting its focus to establishing greater agility in the acquisition system. Experts discussed the effectiveness of reforms and how technology often moves faster than the reforms which at times can cause the reforms to be unsuccessful. Within the panel discussion experts covered different aspects of acquisition strategies and how the defence budget links to the acquisition, and ultimately having a system in place that keeps up with the way the world changes through technology.
