Defense Acquisitions: Opportunities Exist to Improve DoD’s Oversight of Power Source Investments
DIANE Publishing, 2011 - 46 pages
Virtually all Department of Defense (DoD) weapon systems and equipment rely on power sources, such as batteries. This report determined: (1) DoD's approximate investment in power sources; (2) the extent to which DoD coordinates its power source investments; and (3) the extent to which DoD's policies facilitate the use of standard power sources. To address these objectives, the report obtained and analyzed DoD investment data, met with DoD officials and industry representatives, and attended DoD conferences aimed at facilitating power source coordination. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand edition of an important, hard-to-find report.
