ABSTRACT

Weapon System Requirements: Joint Staff Lacks Reliable Data on the Effectiveness of Its Revised Joint Approval Process, Report to Congressional Committees   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Highlights: "In the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, Congress mandated revisions to the JCIDS [Joint Staff uses the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System] process by modifying the scope of the JROC [Joint Requirements Oversight Council]'s responsibilities. The accompanying Senate Armed Services Committee report noted that these changes were, in part, to improve the timeliness of the JCIDS process. House Armed Services Committee report 116-120 included a provision for GAO [Government Accountability Office] to review the revisions to the JCIDS process. This report examines (1) key revisions to the process, (2) how many programs have been through the revised process and how long it took, and (3) the Joint Staff's ability to assess the timeliness of the process."
