Navy Wants More Spending Authority in FY 2017 Budget; Sean Stackley Comments

1 min read

U.S. NavyThe U.S. Navy seeks expanded authority to spend money under the fiscal year 2017 budget in an effort to fast track the way it deploys services, Breaking Defense reported Thursday.

Colin Clark writes the Navy wants a new approach similar to the U.S. Air Force’s Rapid Capability Office.

“There will be something that closely mirrors the Air Force RCO going forward for unique missions, especially in the black world,” Sean Stackley, head of Navy acquisition, told the House Armed Services Committee Thursday.

Stackley called for legal relaxations at an early stage of a program, according to the report.

Reps. Adam Smith and Mac Thornberry agreed to impose fewer restrictions on how the Navy uses funds and supported a prototyping approach for the effort, Clark reports.
