Pentagon Seeks New Suppliers

“The Pentagon believes the cure for many of its procurement woes — soaring equipment costs, lackluster technology and poor return on investment — is to be found in the free market,” National Defense Magazine reports.  

“A competitive market motivates contractors to lower prices and deliver better products, says Richard T. Ginman, director of defense procurement and acquisition policy.”  

Said Ginman: “In the commercial marketplaces, the rule is that prices go down and quality goes up. I would love to be in that situation. We get a better deal when we can compete.”
