Technological Superiority and Better Buying Power 3.0
Frank Kendall

From the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics

The Big IDEA—Dynamic Stakeholder Management
Lt. Col. Franklin D. Gaillard II, USAF, and Frank Gaillard, Ph.D.

To achieve program goals, program managers need a comprehensive strategy that builds support, enables advocacy and provides an underpinning for managing acquisition success.

Think Portfolios, Not Programs
Mike Janiga and Pete Modigliani

The Department of Defense can foster dynamic and innovative solutions for tomorrow’s warfighter by designing acquisition portfolios that deliver an integrated suite of capabilities.

Mining Hidden Gems—Extract Information Systems’ Value
John Kruse and Maura Slattery

The rewards of Enterprise Integration activity, in bringing together disparate systems and data, are not realized as often as they could be and can outweigh the costs and risks.

The Path to Software Cost Control
Dr. James R. Eckardt, Timothy L. Davis, Richard A. Stern, Dr. Cindy S. Wong, Richard K. Marymee and Arde L. Bedjanian

Collecting, tracking and containing software defects in the phase where they occur is an excellent cost-control management practice.

Meaningful Metrics—Measuring Success of Software Integration Testing Labs
Christian Hagen, Steven Hurt and Andrew Williams

The U.S. military is moving from a world dominated by advanced hardware to one of fully integrated, complex systems of both hardware and software. This makes it even more important for the military to understand how to measure and test systems with data-driven metrics and easily measurable results.

Avoiding Proprietary Problems—A Software Clean-Room Method
Don O’Neill

The procurement of most government software as commercial off-the-shelf products with limited or restricted rights increases the need for alertness to intellectual property considerations.

General TCF Closure Tasks in the U.S. Army Signal Corps
Capt. Jeffrey P. Stevens, USA

A deployed Expeditionary Signal Battalion in Afghanistan faced a unique challenge in learning how to close a Technical Control Facility that supports secure and nonsecure information-exchange, including e-mail and files.

A View From Space—NASA Systems Engineering and Test
Woody Spring

Integrated processes that NASA and DoD share provide a methodology for designing and realizing systems—and for planning, assessing and controlling the technical development effort as it evolves.


Early, ongoing and comprehensive exchanges with industry prior to receipt of proposals provides substantial benefits to the government and industry. A recent example of the benefits of a proactive exchange is the current transition of the Army’s large Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems integrator contracts.
