Furloughs and layoffs are only part of the sequestration problem for the military. The Pentagon will have to change how it manages its buildings and energy programs. Katherine Hammack, assistant secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment, joins In Depth to discuss how the Army is planning for sequestration.
Eventually sequestration will go away. But the relationship between DoD and the defense-industrial base will still stand. Steve Grundman, the former deputy undersecretary of defense for industrial affairs and installations and now a Lund Fellow at the Atlantic Council, joins In Depth to discuss how sequestration will impact the defense-industrial base.
Efficiency and effectiveness aren’t mutually exclusive in the defense acquisition system. The Defense Department can find a balance between the two, according to Dan Goure, the vice president of the Lexington Institute. He joins In Depth to discuss the 21st-century defense-logistics enterprise.
