Despite significant efforts to reform the acquisition process, problems with buying weapons systems continue. This report, prepared in 1987 by the Congressional Budget Office, at the request of the Senate Committee on Armed Services, focuses specifically on the pace of weapons production. Stretching out the process of acquiring new weapons not only adds to program costs but also limits efforts to equip U.S. forces with modern weapons. The report examines alternative procurement policies that would permit higher production rates while recognizing overall fiscal constraints on the defense budget

Given the unstable security conditions in Afghanistan, the risk of loss and theft of these weapons is significant, which makes this hearing particularly timely. This testimony focuses on: (1) the types and quantities of weapons the DoD has obtained for ANSF; (2) whether DoD can account for the weapons it obtained for ANSF; and (3) the extent to
