GAO provided a supplement to its report on the defense acquisition work force. GAO examined the roles of the program manager and contracting officer in developing the acquisition strategy for the Army Tactical Missile program.

GAO found that: (1) the project manager played a lead role in finalizing the acquisition strategy by reviewing the draft requirements document for the system and in revising the strategy after the Army and the Air Force dissolved the joint program; and (2) the contracting officer participated as an influential advisor throughout the acquisition strategy development.
