Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro signed an updated manual that offers multiple pathways for acquisition personnel to incorporate commercial innovation into service programs.
The branch said Friday that the SECNAV Instruction 5000.2G manual is intended to encourage departmentwide collaboration on the use of data analytics and other modern tools in making programmatic decisions.
“This updated instruction empowers our Navy and Marine Corps acquisition professionals to aggressively develop promising technologies into capabilities our warfighters need to maintain maritime dominance,” Del Toro said.
The Department of the Navy last revised its acquisition policy instruction in 2019 and outlined in the latest document some measures for the two branches to implement the Adaptive Acquisition Framework.
DON also promotes Defense Acquisition System implementation through the updated manual.
