House Panel Aims to Discern Challenges for Defense Industry
February 8, 2012
The House Armed Services Committee has held a series of hearings in recent months taking the temperature of industry and defense experts on the relationship between contractors and the Defense Department.
Allan Burman, a former administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy and now the president of Jefferson Consulting, testified before the panel Monday, sharing his perspective on improving business practices in DoD procurement.
In his House testimony, Burman, who joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss his remarks and the broader issues of contracting and regulation, pointed to three areas that he said are "fundamental to any sound acquisition system."
