From the executive summary: “This report looks at innovation. Specifically, the Department of Defense (“DOD” or the “Department”) has asked two questions: first, whether the Department is successfully attracting the most innovative ideas and offerings from the private sector outside of its traditional supplier base?; and second, whether the Department is losing, or running the risk of losing, some of its most innovative traditional suppliers? The conclusions of this report are that the DOD is not attracting the most innovative offerings of the private sector, and that it is losing some of its traditional suppliers. This report identifies some of the primary causes of these trends, and notes a number of specific actions that the Department can take to address the core issues and reverse the trends.”
