Consolidation of program funding

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

OSD manages $3B per year in program funding. $1.2B is like research also performed in the military services (Army, Navy, Air Force). OSD and military use separate overhead resources (2%) to execute research programs. Transfer $1.2B of like research to military and save $24M through elimination of OSD contractors, payroll, travel and duplicated research projects.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
