Description : The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have highlighted the continuing need to improve the Department's ability to rapidly respond to urgent warfighter requirements against a highly adaptive enemy. The Department has created or modified numerous urgent needs processes to assist in countering enemy threats by expediting the fielding of warfighter urgent operational needs. The Duncan Hunter National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009 directed the Secretary of Defense to commission a study and report to Congress to assess the effectiveness of the processes used by the Department of Defense for the generation and fulfillment of urgent operational needs. A Defense Science Board Task Force was established in December 2008 to conduct the study. Its report to Congress in July 2009 included recommendations for the Department of Defense to formalize two paths?one for urgent and the other for normal acquisitions; establish a $3 billion per year fund for rapid acquisition and fielding; and establish a new Defense Agency, the Rapid Acquisition and Fielding Agency, to fulfill the urgent operational needs of the warfighter. Key members of the Department?s new leadership have received this report and have incorporated it into their deliberations on how to more effectively support the current war in Afghanistan and Iraq and future operations.

Description : Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan have faced significant risks of mission failure and loss of life due to rapidly changing enemy threats. In response, DoD established urgent operational needs processes to rapidly develop, modify, and field new capabilities, such as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance tech'y., and counterimprovised explosive devices systems. This review determined: (1) what DoD entities exist for responding to urgent operational needs, and the extent to which there is fragmentation, overlap, or duplication; (2) the extent to which DoD has a comprehensive approach for managing and overseeing its urgent needs activities; and (3) has DoD evaluated the potential for consolidations.
