ABSTRACT

Defense Science and Technology: Opportunities to Better Integrate Industry Independent Research and Development into DOD Planning, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 6MB]

From the Key Takeaways: "DOD does not know how contractors' independent R&D [research and development] projects fit into the department's technology goals. As a result, DOD risks making decisions about its multi-billion dollar science and tech investments that could duplicate work or miss opportunities to fill in gaps that the contributions of private industry do not cover."
