Better Buying Power 4.0 could be reality if stars align
There are a lot of variables involved, but there is a possibility that Defense Undersecretary for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Frank Kendall could be at the helm of the fourth iteration of the Pentagon’s attempt to make acquisition more efficient.
Kendall gave a sneak peek at what a Better Buying Power 4.0 might look like Sept. 7 during the ComDef 2016 conference in Washington.
“The thing that we have not put a full court press on is the sustainment side of the house. I’ve told Kristin French who is the principal deputy assistant secretary for logistics and materiel readiness I want her to start thinking about that,” Kendall said. “There’s some things I probably want to kick off even in the last few months of the administration in that area.”
