Abstract: This study examines defense acquisition through the new lens of Transaction Cost Economics (TCE). TCE is an emergent field in economics that has multiple applications to defense acquisition practices. TCE's original focus was to guide make-or-buy decisions that define the boundaries of a firm. This study reviews insights afforded by TCE that impact government outsourcing (buy decisions), paying special attention to defense procurement.
