DoD to change IT acquisition, management
Wednesday - 12/15/2010, 3:13pm EST
Congress received a report from the defense secretary's office last month that called the current defense budget process "mismatched" to the fast pace of the information technology marketplace.
As a remedy, the secretary's office said it has already taken steps toward a more comprehensive process for IT delivery.
DoD is suggesting several new reforms. Some of those principles are:
- Deliver fast and deliver often.
- Conduct testing and development in stages.
- Provide a rationale for all requirements.
- Processes should be flexible.
The report also calls for the creation of some sort of IT revolving fund, as well as giving the Department the flexibility to realign funding, and a new governance approach for IT that would eliminate the traditional phases under the DoD 5000 directive.
