Mattis begins abolition, consolidation of acquisition positions
from Air Force Magazine
Defense Secretary James Mattis launched Pentagon overhauls on two fronts with a brace of Feb. 17 memos to all services and DOD agencies. The first was Mattis' order to the department to start "implementation" of Congress' plan to abolish the position of Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics, as directed by the Fiscal 2017 National Defense Authorization Act. Under the NDAA, the Pentagon will establish two jobs in place of the old one: an Undersecretary for Acquisition and Support, and an Undersecretary for Research and Engineering.
