The Department of Defense

The new reality

There is a new reality for the Department of Defense (DoD). Cost reduction is paramount, and informed decisions must be made between affordability and risk. Managing threats from both inside and out presents a host of new and evolving challenges. Energy assurance and energy cost continue to be a focus, while troops are winding down and coming home. New perspectives, innovative processes, and industry insight and practices—all viewed through a government lens—are keys to success.
