DoD about to revamp its processes for buying business IT systems

If all goes according to plan, the Defense Department is a few weeks away from releasing new guidance on how it buys and builds business IT systems.

Those systems — think logistics, pay and personnel and medical IT — often have costs ranging into the billions of dollars, have been a frequent target of criticism from Capitol Hill and are on the Government Accountability Office’s current list of high-risk federal programs. In last year’s Defense authorization bill, lawmakers told the Defense secretary to prioritize off-the-shelf software, reduce the use of customized code and streamline the department’s own business processes before it makes new IT investments.
