Beth McGrath, Federal Practice Director, Deloitte

If Congress passes the defense acquisition reform bill, introduced by House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry this week, it won't be enought to fix the defense acqusition system. And he's the first to admit that. But the legislation does attempt to chip away at what Thornberry views as clear problems, including a lack of clear lines of authority, and too much paperwork. Beth McGrath, federal practice director of Deloitte and former deputy chief managment officer for the Defense Department, tells In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu what she thinks of the bill.

Beth McGrath, Federal Practice Director, Deloitte

The next steps in defense acquisition reform may come from the Senate Homeland Security Committee. Its Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations asks experts from all parts of the defense acquisition community to tell them where the committee should go next to streamline defense acquisition. Beth McGrath of Deloitte is former Deputy Chief Management Officer at the Defense Department and one of the contributors to the committee's efforts. She worked to institute what she called a cost culture. She didn't use that phrase in her comments to the committee, but Francis Rose asked her if that concept was written between the lines on In Depth.
