Marvin Sambur writes Defense News commentary on DoD acquisition

ISR Professor of the Practice Marvin Sambur has written a commentary on Department of Defense acquisition for Defense News.

The article appears in the Feb. 16, 2009 issue and is also available online (subscription to Defense News required to view).
