Report of the Defense Science Board Task Force on Developmental Test and Evaluation - May 2008
The Defense Science Board Task Force on Developmental Test and Evaluation (DT&E) was established by the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics to examine T&E roles, responsibilities, policy, and practices; and to recommend changes that may contribute to improved success in IOT&E as well as quicker delivery of improved capability and sustainability to the Warfighter. The Task Force study was the result of a dramatic increase in recent years in the number of programs that have been evaluated as not operationally effective and/or operationally suitable at the completion of IOT&E. Approximately 50% of the programs completing IOT&E since 2000 have been assessed as not operationally effective and/or suitable. Problems in the suitability area predominate with reliability deficiencies serving as the major shortcoming.
