Personal Author N/A
Abstract Due to the current and projected fiscal climate, the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) remains concerned over the Department of Defense s (DoD) ability to sustain current force structure levels as well as to continue critical modernization of military capabilities. It is imperative that the Department identify and pursue every opportunity to economize and increase the efficiency of its business operations. The SECDEF tasked the Defense Business Board (DBB) to form a Task Group to provide recommendations to materially reduce overhead and increase the efficiency of the Department s business operations. The Task Group was also asked to identify both short- and long-term opportunities to achieve budget savings as well as to make process or organizational changes that would yield long-term operational efficiencies.
