Abstract: This report, the latest in an annual series, examines the trends in what the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is buying, how the DoD is buying it, and from whom the DoD is buying. This year’s study focuses on the acquisition system’s response to the 2018 National Defense Strategy’s emphasis on peer and near-peer competition and the emergence of a new research and development (R&D) paradigm. This report looks at whether there has been a significant shift in the DoD’s investment posture between platform portfolios and the composition of R&D spending between contracts and Other Transaction Authority (OTA) agreements. Additionally, this report includes analysis of the topline DoD contracting trends.
