- The Department of Defense despite recent reforms efforts continues to face challenges in trying to get new weapons to the battlefield, according to a new federal oversight report.
More than half of the 26 major defense acquisition programs reported new delays. At the same time, net costs increased by $37 billion, the Government Accountability Office report found.
- “The Department of Defense continues to face challenges quickly developing innovative new weapons,” the report reads. “These challenges persist even with recent reforms to its acquisition process intended to help deliver systems to the warfighter in a timelier manner.”
