Stewardship & Pricing Responsibilities (07/26/2017)

Summary:  The Director, Defense Pricing, reminds us of our pricing responsibilities to warfighters and taxpayers in light of the attached SECDEF memo regarding our mission and stewardship responsibilities. We must ensure that we are procuring what we need and that we have done the necessary due diligence that we are paying a fair and reasonable price. Per SECDEF: "Only by instilling budget discipline, by establishing a culture of cost awareness, and by holding ourselves accountable, can we earn the trust and confidence of the Congress and the American people that we are the best possible stewards of taxpayer dollars. Cavalier or casually acquiescent decisions to spend taxpayer dollars in an ineffective and wasteful manner are not to recur." SECDEF expects all of us to take aggressive steps to end waste in DoD.
