After more than a decade of operating at an incredibly high tempo in order to support two wars, the Army official who oversees that service's contracting workforce says it's time to slow down, think and realize that not all bureaucratic processes are bad.

Harry Hallock, the deputy assistant secretary of the Army for procurement, is Jared Serbu's guest for the full hour in this edition of On DoD. They discuss shaping and training the workforce, improving the Army's approach to service contracting, interaction with industry and the Army's successful push last year to meet its small business contracting goals.
