TITLE IX DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE ORGANIZATION AND MANAGEMENT

Subtitle A Department of Defense Management

NDAA Section

House Conference Report 110-477

SEC. 907. MODIFICATION OF BACKGROUND REQUIREMENT OF INDIVIDUALS APPOINTED AS UNDER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE FOR ACQUISITION, TECHNOLOGY, AND LOGISTICS.

    Section 133(a) of title 10, United States Code, is amended by striking `in the private sector'.

Modification of background requirement of individuals appointed as Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (sec. 907)

The Senate amendment contained a provision (sec. 903) that would delete the requirement that a nominee for the position of Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics have extensive management background `in the private sector.'

The House bill contained no similar provision.

The House recedes.

The conferees agree that management experience in the private sector can be an extremely valuable asset for an individual serving in the position of Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics. However, the conferees conclude that other experience--including management experience in the public sector--may also be highly relevant to service in this position.

Senate Armed Services Committee Report 110-77

Modification of background requirement of individuals appointed as Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (sec. 903)

The committee recommends a provision that would modify the background requirement for the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics to delete the requirement that a nominee have extensive management background `in the private sector.' The committee concludes that management experience in the Department of Defense and other federal agencies can be as valuable as management experience in the private sector.
