Army Evaluating Multidomain Task Force’s Potential Impact to Acquisition

Mark Esper, secretary of the U.S. Army and 2019 Wash100 Award recipient, said the service is still assessing how its multi-domain task force operations will affect procurement procedures during a recent Brookings Institute event, FCW reported Wednesday. Esper noted changes to the task force’s structure are possible but there is no definite schedule for the release of the Army’s updated Multidomain Operations Plan Strategy.

"I need some time for our doctrine to play out and see what it looks like," he added.

The Army secretary also noted that he is confident about the current status of the Futures Command, which previously saw concerns from Congress regarding bureaucratic obstacles.
