Abstract : Senior Defense leaders are increasingly aware that the economic environment demands that the DoD move from defense readiness at any cost to defense readiness at the best value. DoD has identified key systems that are essential to its efforts to transform business operations. As of December 2009, DoD had invested over $5.8 billion in ERPs and will invest additional billions before the ERPs are fully implemented. Most of these programs are over budget, behind schedule, and have not met performance expectations. Designed to transform business operations, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are enabling technologies composed of integrated modules that make up the core engine of transaction processing. Their effectiveness depends on the ability and willingness of an organization to change its behavior and its processes. This assessment, requested by the House Armed Services Committee: identifies, analyzes, and provides recommendation to address the root causes of these underperforming systems.
