Lt. Gen. James Pasquarette: G-8 Should Streamline Tech Acquisition to Achieve Modernization Goals

Lt. Gen. James Pasquarette, deputy chief of staff of U.S. Army Futures Command, said the service should launch efforts to begin streamlining the processes for technological acquisitions to achieve G-8’s 2028 modernization goals.

\n\n

He said the command has to focus on and address its technological acquisition capability requirements through programs that reduce bureaucratic processes from three to five years to less than a year, the U.S. Army said Thursday.

\n\n

“[It] is not about creating new Army structure … but rather streamlining of work to overcome the bureaucratic inertia and stove-piping,” Pasquarette said at an Association of the U.S. Army Institute of Land Warfare meeting.

\n\n

He noted that Defense Secretary James Mattis instructed the Futures Command to be at par with peer-competitors when it comes to tech acquisitions by fiscal year 2022.

\n\n

The Army will update Abrams and Bradley fleets as part of the European Defense Initiative budget request, Pasquarette added.
