Abstract : This study of the utilization of DoD in-house laboratories was initiated in April 1974 by a memorandum to the Assistant Secretaries of the Military Departments (R and D) in response to a management objective of the Secretary of Defense. The charge for the study was to (1) determine the requirements for DoD laboratories, (2) assess the capability of the laboratories to meet these requirements, (3) identify excess capacity, overlapping capabilities, shortfalls or instances where R and D could be contracted to industry at a savings, and (4) define a program to upgrade the quality of the laboratories.
