On this edition of On DoD, we revisit a special series Federal News Radio aired last month on federal acquisition: The Missing Pieces of Procurement Reform.
The Defense Department is watching the mergers and acquisition market develop and it’s ready to step in if it doesn’t like what it sees. DoD is worried about a drop in competition. The M&A market isn’t completely dead though. Kevin Kelly, chief executive officer of LGS Innovations, has some first-hand experience with M&A. He was Francis Rose’s guest on Industry Chatter.
Last year, the Pentagon spent nearly $75 billion on acquisitions of commercial items, more than double the amount from five years ago. But the word “commercial” in DoD applies to a lot of products you won’t find on any store shelf.
Kevin L. Kelly is the chief operating officer for LGS Innovations.
