Pentagon to streamline process for buying business systems

"A trial program to revamp the Defense Department's process for acquiring business systems will be formally announced in the next four to six weeks, an official leading the Pentagon's business transformation efforts said this week.

The five to seven years that it can take to field information technology systems is too long, and the process needs to move faster if the department is to adopt industry best practices, said Paul Brinkley, Defense deputy undersecretary for business transformation and co-director of the newly created Business Transformation Agency.
