Satellite Transmission Launches Acquisition Excellence Week

Satellite Transmission Launches Acquisition Excellence Week

By Jim Garamone, American Forces Press Service.

Washington D.C. -- (AFPS) September 5, 2001 -- Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld will kick-off Acquisition and Logistics Excellence Week, Sept. 10 with a live satellite broadcast.

DoD personnel around the world can view the address via a live satellite broadcast and as a Webcast beginning at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time. Also scheduled to speak is Air Force Gen. Richard B. Myers, current vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and President Bush's nominee to be the next chairman.

During the ceremony, Pete Aldridge, undersecretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics, will present David Packard Excellence in Acquisition Awards to acquisition teams from the Army, Navy, Air Force-Defense Contract Management Agency, and the Defense Logistics Agency.

The theme for the week is "From Reform to Excellence." This is a conscious shift. "When I entered (office), we heard a lot about acquisition reform, and I did not like the word 'reform.' It sounded like, 'I've done something wrong, I must repent,'" Aldridge said during an Aug. 15 meeting with reporters. "So I've changed the title and the theme from acquisition reform to acquisition excellence."

Aldridge said he would use the week to emphasize the things that DoD is going to do to improve acquisition processes.
