June 15, 2014 FCW.COM 23 The Texas Republican shares his thoughts on the prospects for reforming acquisition management at the Pentagon BY SEAN LYNGAAS FCW staff writer Sean Lyngaas recent- ly sat down with Rep. Mac Thorn- berry (R-Texas) as the House Armed Services Committee was preparing to mark up the scal 2015 defense autho- rization bill. Committee Chairman Howard "Buck" McKeon (R-Calif.) has asked Thornberry to develop a strategy for overhauling defense acquisition. The conversation highlighted Thornberry s views on the Pentagon s ability to keep acquisition costs in check and what Congress can do to help --- or hinder --- those efforts. Below are excerpts from the interview, edited for clarity. Teri Takai stepped down as DOD's CIO in May. In what ways should her suc- cessor pick up where she left off and in what ways should the next CIO go in a different direction? I think [Takai] was moving things in the right direction. The challenge with reforming the Pentagon is always that there is some cultural and institutional resistance to reform. So it would be helpful if the person who takes that job knew the building and the institutions or at least had some experience with making changes in a big, complex orga- nization, although nothing is as big and complex as the Pentagon. For technology at the Pentagon, the fundamental deal is you have an institu- tion that is, in some ways, rightfully Q&A with Rep. Mac Thornberry I don't know if you could ever have a CIO suf ciently empowered to overcome the resistance that he or she will face. DRAGUTIN CVIJANOVIC
