Committee on Owning the Technical Baseline for Acquisition Programs in the U.S. Air Force: A Study
Owning the Technical Baseline for Acquisition Programs in the U.S. Air Force
This new report, from the National Academies, discusses the strategic value to the Air Force of owning the technical baseline and the risk of not owning it and highlights key aspects of how agencies other than the Air Force own the technical baseline for their acquisition programs. This report identifies specific barriers to owning the technical baseline for the Air Force and makes recommendations to help guide the Air Force in overcoming those barriers.
This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on September 26, 2016 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
