A study from Booz Allen Hamilton and the Government Business Council recommends government and industry align their expectations in order to meet the requirements of defense acquisition programs.

The Booz Allen-backed study polled 340 federal and defense leaders to assess their views on military procurement and potential reform in the process, Booz Allen said Wednesday.

Eighty-five percent of DoD personnel cited positive outcomes as a result of increased government involvement when acquiring C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance) systems.

“If the government has a bigger role in the design and owns the intellectual property they will have the control to integrate quickly and efficiently,” said Greg Wenzel, a Booz Allen senior vice president.

Fifty-five percent respondents believed that greater input from government in designing C4ISR requirements would better fulfill warfighters’ needs and 51 percent believe that input could further enhance system interoperability, according to Booz Allen.

Forty-three percent of respondents also cited a disconnect between public and private stakeholders on their goals for defense product and service acquisitions.

“In a post-war era with limited budgets, there is time to pause and think about collaborating and communicating,” Wenzel said.
