The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (OUSD) for Acquisition and Sustainment, formerly OUSD Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics, has focused efforts on improving the process in which delivery is made to the war fighter as well as maximizing the value for taxpayers. Efforts have been largely guided by the National Defense Strategy with six goals having been laid out by senior leadership.
Changes are currently being put into place to achieve these goals and reinvent DoD acquisition to make the process of supplying the military more up to date and cost-effective. Among the initiatives are the Cyber Model Maturity Certification (CMMC), a new intellectual property leader, and an effort to strengthen the DoD supply chain against adversaries. These initiatives will make defense supply chains more compliant, protect data rights against cybersecurity threats, and grow the defense-industrial base.
