    Abstract:
    There are a host of institutional problems that hinder the government’s procurement of weapons systems. For example, as Fox (1988) points out, interservice rivalry, the uncertain funding environment, the short tenure of program managers, limited continuity in Pentagon management, and excessive congressional oversight of major weapons acquisitions are all important obstacles to efficient procurement policy.
